Botero Will Abstain from Participating in Awards Due to the complexity of and time consuming process, Botero has decided that – for awhile – it will not participate in awards. Botero has already earned 15 First Prize awards and feels it is time to let everyone else get some. “We will be back in 3 or 4 years.”
