According to Yuliy Borisov, the correct organization of competition is very important: "I worked a lot in jury and observed different situations. It happens that the unreasoned technique of vote leads to terrible results simply because of the wrong mathematics. Therefore precompetitive work and development of criteria are so important. Let's say the contest committee considers that the winner building has to be memorable and estimates projects by this criterion. Or it has to be environmental and cheap and then projects are considered in these parameters. It is important to build hierarchy and to appropriate to each criterion the weight. Then there is a chance that the result will be good".
