WEF 2017 Vancouver Competition Update

We are sad to announce that we will be cancelling the 2017 competition in Vancouver. Unfortunately we didn’t receive the necessary number of applications to run a strong competition and therefore decided to cancel this year to prepare more extensively for the 2018 competition.

Thank you to everyone who supported and applied this year. We will be looking forward to the 2018 competition.
