    This competition is unique in that winners are featured online, and can be shared/viewed by anyone (not just subscribers, etc.) and heavily teased to by the many communication channels of HOW. In fact, the galleries in years past are some of our highest visited pages on the entire site! This is the third year for the Poster Design Awards, and it has operated successfully online since.
