The Ken Roberts Memorial Delineation Competition (KRob) has celebrated the best in architectural delineation for 45 years. A Dallas classic that has received international recognition, KRob honors hand and digital delineation by professionals and students throughout the world. Averaging over 400 entries from 25 countries in the past several years, the competition’s visibility continues to grow. The Ken Roberts Memorial Delineation Competition is the most senior architectural drawing competition currently in operation anywhere in the world.

General

All entries must be of an architectural nature, and must be authored by one individual. Entries can be elevations, sections, or perspectives, and can be conceptual or final renderings. Exploration and innovation in unique techniques are encouraged. While there is no limit to the number of entries one can submit, submissions awarded in past Ken Roberts competitions are not eligible. Sketchbooks as a whole will not be accepted; a single, clearly marked page within the sketchbook may be entered.

Professional Eligibility

Each entry must have been executed while entrant is a professional in architecture or in related fields (architectural illustrator, educator, engineer, cg animation). Due to the versatile nature of the architectural profession, it is not required for the entrant to be employed at the time submitting work for KRob. All work completed after graduation from a design program is considered professional.

Student Eligibility

Each entry must have been executed while entrant was enrolled at an academic institution (either high school or pursuing a higher education degree in architecture or design). Student entries can be submitted no later than 12 months following the entrant’s final graduation date.

Guidelines on the eligibility for prize categories

Each entry will be sorted into the appropriate prize category, guided by the following rules:

  1. The entrant must be currently enrolled as a student to be eligible for the student prize categories. Any changes made to a student drawing after graduation will make it a professional entry.
  2. If the work entered was completed at any point after graduation from a design program, it will be eligible for both the Hand Delineation Prize and the Hybrid Media Prize in the professional category. Since architectural delineation at the professional level takes place in a variety of circumstances, whether in response to client demands, design competitions, or research, it is not required for one to be employed by a traditional architectural design firm or studio. Any changes made to a student drawing after graduation will make it a professional entry.

Guidelines on the eligibility for the Travel Sketch Award

  1. The content of the drawing must be architectural – a space, building, an urban formation and/or a landscape or garden.
  2. Submittals must have been drawn in situ – at the place, in a bound or unbound sketchbook.
  3. Any view, diagram and graphic notation should be clear.
  4. Either a single image or a page combining different views, diagrams and conventions is encouraged.

  1. a single JPEG, PNG, or GIF image that is
