After a round of voting by participating teams, a diverse panel of over 30 judges, and a 19 hour consultation with a world-renowned psychic’s one-eyed cat…we are now ready to announce the 2013 Deconstruction Awards. Drum roll please.
-The Deconstruction Award: Judging for this award is based on a combination of overall concept and creative repurposing of objects and ideas. (This is the award for the Full Spectrum 40W Hobby Laser)
