The panel appreciated the wide range and quality of entries received (including some from Mexico, Paris and Amsterdam), but none of the ideas stood as a definite winner, so the panel decided not to award first prize on this occasion, and would like to encourage designers in the Triratna Buddhist Community to take bolder steps in communicating the Buddha’s teaching in ways that are clear, direct, and immediately apparent to newcomers.
