Chih-Ting Lo, one of our international jury members had travelled all the way from Canada on the occasion of the event says “-I’ve been involved in similar type of challages as a judge over the years and I thought they were all very well prepared…and they definitely knew what they were talking about. I thought the level was quite high.”
