#281: I am a little disappointed to see that my wining packaging product, was not in any of the major publications after 24 hours from results announcement.
The PR Process is indeed an ongoing process; if there are not any publications that had featured your works in the first 24 hours, it does not mean that there would not be others. We regularly see even features of those who won years ago; this is because in some cases editors will have a topic to write about; a very specific theme and they would contact us for more images and text. Furthermore we send the publications the list of all winners, the publications choose the products to feature themselves, that means we are not able to impose whose works they would feature, not only we are not able to impose it, we actually do not wish to do so; because if we push specific designs to be featured at each publication, it is just unfair to designers who had better or more appealing work, plus these articles become rarely successful; the organic articles created by editors who choose and feature winners related to their publications usually create the most benefit, as such articles are published by their readers, spread and shared. In any case, the do not be let down, if there are no publication results within the first 24 hours, even after many days; your designs are being discovered by people who check the featured designs, and as said earlier, the PR is not a one-shot thing; our process is ongoing and there will be more publications to feature works.
