We prove that P1fP2 is a projective representation of a quiver Q= if and only if P1 and P2 are projective left R-modules, f is an injection, and f(P1)P2 is a summand. Then, we generalize the result so that a representation M1f1M2f2fn2Mn1fn1Mn of a quiver Q= is projective representation if and only if each Mi is a projective left R-module and the representation is a direct sum of projective representations.
