What advice would you give to individuals who struggle to decide  whether it would be beneficial for them to participate in architecture  competitions?

Our advice as an office is that the idea of ​​participating in a contest does not have to be linked to a prize or recognition, on the contrary, the true value of the contest is the experience and learning that is achieved by being able to conclude an idea that Solve the premises that the contest raises.
