 the shadow Olympics minister Tessa Jowell has criticised London 2012 organisers over the stringent marketing rules that will prevent architects from entering their Olympics projects into awards – The Guardian

"This kind of stricture was never the intention when the rules were designed," said Jowell. "I hope that a reasonable compromise can be found so that these great British architects can get the recognition that they deserve."

Earlier this week, Wilkinson Eyre were presented with a "protest award" at the 2012 New London Awards for their Basketball Arena designed with Sinclair Knight Merz and KSS.
