    Have you ever dreamed of an architecture competition that would inspire you to create something whimsical, magic and fun? A competition that would excite your fantasy to produce something that can be appreciated not just by your fellow architects and designers, but by all audiences?

    Blank Space Fairy Tales is an open, international, ideas competition that challenges creatives from all professional realms to develop visionary, narrative-based design proposals. The competition is an extension of Blank Space’s mission to uncover the true power of architecture by creating new opportunities for design to engage the public.

    We’d like you to invent a story for your design. We’d like you to rewrite the way architecture communicates itself to the world, and to do so in the most unconventional way. The proposals will combine text-based architectural fairy tales with innovative graphic representations, and in doing so, seek to unlock the power of architecture by improving the way that it is shared, digested, and communicated.

    A successful submission will craft a unique narrative that is communicated through a combination of visuals and text in the most spectacular way. This includes renderings, typical architectural drawings (plans, sections, elevations), diagrams, and a text-based narrative, that combine together to form a unique architectural fairy tale.

    Individual or group entries are permitted. Multiple entries per individual or team are permitted, but each submission must be registered and paid for separately. This is a digital competition and hard copy proposals will not be accepted.

    Early Entry Fee: 50 USD (until December 6)
    Late Entry Fee: 75 USD (until January 17)

    Participation is open to architects, engineers, designers, illustrators, students and creatives worldwide.
