After having won (and paid for) quite a few awards in the early years of FL@33 we decided in 2004 not to enter any of our projects anymore. Award schemes are usually simply too time-consuming and expensive for small studios. We find it quite frankly much more rewarding to be invited to give talks and focus on new commissioned and self-initiated projects instead For more recent achievements please visit our work archive and press section here at flat33.com. Thank you.
