Render's Game: Vectorworks Partners with AIAS For Annual Design Competition

Posted by Troy McConnell on 10/22/18 9:45 AM  |  1 min read time

For the second year, we are celebrating the next generation of designers through our partnership with the American Institute of Architecture Students (AIAS). Together, we are sponsoring the second annual AIAS In Studio Render/Sketch Competition.


AIAS is asking its members to share their sketches and renderings to showcase their work and inspire those looking to grow their skill sets.

"AIAS members like to live on the edge of design, technology, and innovation,” said Nick Serfass, executive director of the AIAS. “As the next generation of architects, the AIAS is excited to partner with Vectorworks, a next-generation technology company. Vectorworks' products and technology can help propel AIAS members to the forefront of the design and architecture professions."

The deadline for AIAS members to enter the competition is December 14. Participants should share their sketches and/or renderings on their public Instagram and tag AIAS (@aiasorg) and Vectorworks (@vectorworks), and use the hashtags #AIASInStudio and #InStudioRender.

Every Wednesday throughout the competition, AIAS National Officers will select their top five submissions and feature them in the AIAS InStudio Highlights on Instagram.

At the end of the competition, the jury will select three winners from posted submissions. The first-place winner will receive a cash prize of $300, with second- and third-place winners taking home $200 and $100, respectively. For inspiration, take a look at last year’s winning entries here.


First place winner from last year's competition, Jenny Nguyen. Taichung Opera House


Second place winner from last year's competition, Mark Davis. Hammond-Harwood House.

Submissions must be uploaded to Instagram by 11:59 p.m. on Friday, December 14, 2018, and winners will be announced at the 2018 AIAS Forum event in Seattle.
