“We greatly value the unique experiences and backgrounds of the next generation of designers,” said Alice Lowy, marketing director at Vectorworks. “With this in mind, we established this program three years ago to reward talented students and to support their academic endeavors in the classroom and beyond so that they can kick-start their careers.”
To apply, students must submit their best individual or group project and answer three questions in 150 words or less each. Eligible students must be enrolled in an accredited design program and registered for six or more credits or have graduated during the 2015 or 2016 school term. A notable panel of judges will evaluate submissions based on design integrity, originality, the effective use of computer technology and communication of design vision. Winners will be revealed on Friday, 18 August 2017.
