The InStudio Render/Sketch Competition Returns

Boston – 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 the next generation of designers by displaying their original designs. The competition gives students the platform to inspire their peers and further develop their skills.

To enter, AIAS members share their original sketches and renderings of designs and concepts on Instagram. On a weekly basis, beginning June 15 and ending Oct. 4, 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 $300, with second and third place winners taking home $200 and $100.

The four-month long entry period allows competitors time to create designs in their software of choice. Entries created in Archicad and tagged #ArchicadInStudio21 will receive additional amplification from Graphisoft on the company’s Instagram.

Students need only to have an active AIAS membership to participate as the competition is open to all years and skill levels, and entries must also include a brief narrative about the submission. Full competition details and how to enter the 2021 competition can be found here.
