        • The 16 finalists in the Vatnismyri Masterplan Competition in Reykjavik, Iceland have been announced and are available for detailed viewing on the competition website.

          The call for ideas was an anonymous, two-phase process. The jury selected 16 entrants from the 136 entries in the first phase to participate in the second phase to further develop their proposals. The jury selected 7 entries for recognition and 3 were identified as first rank proposals.

          A compensation of EURO 10,000 was awarded to each entry invited to the second phase. Additionally, EURO 200,000 was distrbuted to the 7 ranked proposals.
