From Monday until the end of May, in a total of two weeks, in Krakow there are 10 billboards that advertise our championships. When you'll arrive to Krakow, you will see them live, because two of them are near the competition office (WKS Wawel) and some more in the city center. The main character is of course, our competitor, Tomasz Lubkiewicz, who took part in a photo session nearly a year ago - its effects can be seen in the "media" bookmark. Take a look at the pictures below:

Another sponsor with us!

We succeeded in gaining another sponsor - the Wiśniowski company. It is a brand which this year celebrates its 25th anniversary. Now Wiśniowski is a leading manufacturer of doors, gates and fences in this part of Europe. Wiśniowski brand products are characterized by high quality, therefore, they are like the culmination of the investment. This fits in perfectly with the image of our event, where keywords are also just like prestige, crowning and quality. Welcome!
