archcember architecture competition

Archcember | Storytelling through Illustrations

Submission: December 31, 2017
Registration: December 31, 2017
Language: English
Location: India
Prizes: Please see details below
Type: Open


All designed objects, whether conceived by an architect, artist, graphic designer, industrial designer, or landscape architect, tell a story. Their stories can sometimes be discerned easily, and at other times need to be discovered through thoughtful consideration. The story can be as simple as a metaphor or as complex as a novel.

Architects are natural storytellers – it’s a process that is inherently built into our creative process and when used properly, it’s one of the very best tools in our tool bag.

The Challenge
Every story or narrative is a series of events tied together into a plot. The key is to display your concept in the most appropriate visual form for the project in question

The Archcember challenge is about telling your story through illustrations (sketches/doodles/paintings or computer generated illustrations and graphics) related to architecture.
• We will give you 3 words every week and you have to tell us a story through your illustration and an article of 200 words which justifies your concept.
• Not necessarily, but if the illustrations respond to the theme of the contest i.e. Architecture, it would be much more meaningful.
• Your Sketches can narrate stories through functional or explanatory , social, investigative and sarcastic approaches or comic strips.

The registration for the competition is FREE.
