After a year hiatus, the American Institute of Architecture Students (AIAS) in partnership with Graphisoft North America (GSNA) has announced the return of the InStudio Render/Sketch Competition. Graphisoft has signed on to sponsor the InStudio Render/Sketch Competition, which serves to empower the next generation of designers.
The InStudio Render/Sketch Competition gives students the platform to inspire their peers and further develop their skills.
AIAS InStudio Competition
To enter the InStudio Render/Sketch Competition AIAS members share their original sketches and renderings of designs and concepts on Instagram. On a weekly basis, beginning 15 June 2021, AIAS National Officers will select the top five submissions and feature them in the AIAS Studio Instagram Highlight.
Members with a public Instagram profile who share their sketches and renderings, tagging @AIASorg and @Graphisoft will be eligible to win cash prizes.
The first-place winner will receive USD 300.00, with second-place and third-place winners taking home USD 200.00 and USD 100.00, respectively.
Entries created using Archicad and tagged #ArchicadInStudio21 will receive additional amplification from Graphisoft on the company’s Instagram, @Graphisoft.
“Graphisoft is thrilled to be supporting this exciting initiative – it gives us an opportunity to honor and further our long-standing commitment to the AIAS,” said Tracey Gatland, General Manager, Graphisoft North America. “We have always focused on providing the best tools, namely Archicad, free to students and schools. We expect to see great things from the AIAS membership in the coming days on Instagram.”
“The AIAS’ InStudio Render/Sketch competition provides students the opportunity to exercise both their creativity and design skills. The submissions that we have seen over the years have been truly remarkable,” said Ashley Ash, Interim Executive Director of AIAS. “We are grateful for Graphisoft’s longstanding relationship with the AIAS and thrilled that they will be sponsoring this year’s iteration of the InStudio Render/Sketch competition.”
Students need only to have an active AIAS membership to participate as the competition is open to all years and skill levels. Entries must also include a brief narrative about the submission.
