Entries are now open for the Architecture Drawing Prize 2023, an award that celebrates the art and skill of architectural drawing. Architects, designers, and students from around the world will need to submit their entries by September 8, 2023.

Established in 2017 by the World Architecture Festival (WAF), Make Architects, and Sir John Soane’s Museum, the Architecture Drawing Prize is being held for the seventh time. Recalling the spirit of the great architects of the past, from Palladio to John Soane, Le Corbusier, and Cedric Price, the competition aims to showcase the importance of architectural drawing and the skills of established and emerging professionals in the graphic representation of projects. Sponsored by the Iris Ceramica Group, the competition also aims to explore the relationship between art and architecture involved in the graphic communication of a project.

The competition gives artists and architects complete freedom in their approach. Drawings can be executed using a wide variety of techniques – hand-drawn, digital, or hybrid – and can be perspectives, technical drawings, construction details, and so on.

“Architecture can combine technology and sustainability in order to stimulate more significant interactions between humans and the environment. The Architecture Drawing Prize is a brilliant opportunity to demonstrate the genius of people and the desire to experiment. Hence the importance of the Prize: it assumes a prominent role in reflecting architectural creativity.”
Federica Minozzi, CEO of Iris Ceramica Group
