Competitors work together in groups of two to four. Some choose to work on all projects together but others split the work up among them, according to Björg Jónsdóttir, the director of Samfés, the voluntary organization of community centers in Iceland, which also runs annual singing and rap competitions.

It is the twelfth time that the Stíll competition takes place, reports.

The event concludes with a dance and concert in Laugardalshöll. Around 7,500 teenagers have attended in past years.
