Call for Entries: Eye Line 2024 International Competition

Deadline Date: May 10, 2024

Donor Name: RIBA Journal

Grant Size: Not Available

Pen, pencil, computer or even AI –whatever your medium, the drawing competition is open for submissions.

How do you represent the world you would like to see? Eye Line 2024, RIBAJ’s annual, international competition showcasing the best drawing and rendering skills, is open for entries. As ever, they ask for images in two categories – student and practitioner – that brilliantly convey architecture, in any medium or combination of media. They are seeking the best and most exciting submissions from those at the sharp end of representation.

Images of all kinds, from hand-drawn concept sketch to technically proficient and layered renders are eligible: ‘drawing’ includes any method by which the power of an architectural idea is communicated, whether depictions of existing buildings or works of the imagination. Last year saw the first AI entries.

There are two categories:

  • Student category: images made by those in architectural education or who are submitting images made before final qualification.
  • Practitioner category: images made by those fully qualified and working in practice, whether for real-life projects or exploring ideas or experiences.

Winning entries will be published in print and online. The colleagues at RIBA’s Drawings and Archives Collection will inspect winners for potential inclusion in their archive.

Each year they are gratified by the originality, wit and talent presented to Eye Line: an international, free-to-enter award. Practitioners and students – show them your best drawings and join a prestigious cohort of past winners!
