There are many PR agencies, design associations and individuals that buy A' Design Award nomination tickets in bulk with discounted pricing and sell them to their clients. This practice of buying low and selling high is most profitable during late entry period where the design award entry fees are at highest. Exploiting this principle is easy; purchase A' Design Award nomination tickets and sell them to third parties.
