Fairy Tales 2015 – Architecture Storytelling Competition

Blank Space has recently opened registration for the second, Fairy Tales 2015 international architecture storytelling competition.

The Fairy Tales competition invites architects, designers, writers, artists, engineers, illustrators, students and creatives to submit their own unique architectural fairy tales. The scale, location, and program of the submission is up to each entrant. A successful entry crafts a text narrative, along with 5 images, in the most spectacular way possible.

#FairyTales2015 offers three (3) main prizes, the 1st Place prize being US$1,500 + publication in the Fairy Tales: Volume II book. The 2nd and 3rd place winners will receive monetary prizes as well and together with up to ten (10) honorable mentions will also be published in Fairy Tales: Volume II.

After the record breaking success of Fairy Tales 2014, with over 300 entries from 50 different countries, Blank Space is even more excited for the second edition of the competition.

“When we launched the inaugural Fairy Tales competition, we could not have anticipated the overwhelming response it drew. The participants hailed from the most diverse backgrounds and from so many corners of the world we’d have a hard time visiting them all in one lifetime,” say Matthew Hoffman and Francesca Giuliani, Founders of Blank Space. “Each participant crafted their wildest architectural ideas, unleashing the power of architecture on universal themes at the core of humanity. The results were profound, and have been viewed, shared, tweeted and exhibited to millions of design fans around the world.”

Fairy Tales 2015 is open to all architects, designers, students and members of the public either individually or as a team. There is no age limit. The projects may be carried out individually or in groups, with no restriction on the number of members of the team.
