The 6th Fairy Tales 2019 – Architecture Storytelling Competition now is over!
Blank Space is celebrating the 6th edition of its Fairy Tales 2019 - Architecture Storytelling Competition open to all architects, designers, writers, artists, engineers, illustrators, students and creatives to submit their own unique architectural fairy tales.
The Blank Space, an online platform for architecture founded in 2013 by Matthew Hoffman and Francesca Giuliani, is thrilled to announce the 6th edition of its Fairy Tales - Architecture Storytelling Competition for 2019, largest annual creative challenge in the world, in partnership with ArchDaily, Archinect, Bustler, and the AIAS.
Over the last five years, the Fairy Tales competition has captured the imagination of thousands of participants from around the world. Today, the competition returns to inspire creatives and designers at a time when the world is struggling to distinguish fact from fiction — when real news is often grim and scary, and “fake news” sows discord and diffidence. In a time like this, storytelling might be the most powerful tool to unlock universal truths and rediscover what matters. Register today and start crafting your fairy tale.
Fairy Tales invites all architects, designers, writers, artists, engineers, illustrators, students and creatives to submit their own unique architectural fairy tales.
• A successful entry will craft a text narrative, along with 5 imags, in the most spectacular way possible.
• Images submitted need to be 11"x 17"(any orientation), 300dpi and saved in .jpeg format
• You need to send text-based, fictional fairly tail, 800-1400 words saved in .doc or .docx format
"My personal little theory is that we’re all constantly reworking our childhoods. For me, creativity has a lot to do with recovering lost innocence, says jury member Jürgen Mayer, As a society, we’re definitely looking at the future again, but always in terms of responsibilities, cautions, and potential catastrophes. I refer back to this moment in the past where there was this excitement, energy, and risk of discovery."
"The best entries we have received over the years are not just visually stunning and original in their execution, but they inspire us by striking universal chords, says Blank Space founder Francesca Giuliani. From deeply personal studies in how we relate to our surroundings, to tales of large-scale social dystopias, the entrants to Fairy Tales competition have the power to ignite meaningful and needed conversations in the wider architecture community."
The winners will be selected by a jury that includes Tatiana Bilbao, Mark Foster Gage, Jürgen Mayer and Moshe Safdie.
Participants can register for a $45 - Early Bird Discount until September 28th. Instead Regular Registration cost $60 and will be open until December 6th and Late Registration cost $75 until the Submission Deadline on January 4th, 2018.
The 6th Fairy Tales 2019 is open to all architects, designers, writers, artists, engineers, illustrators, students and creatives.
