Architizer’s inaugural drawing competition — the One Drawing Challenge — is well underway, with many stunning entries already submitted. We’re thrilled at the engagement the competition has sparked, so we want to invite even more creativity from you, dear drawer!

Enter the 2019 One Drawing Challenge

Today, we’re excited to announce a new offer for all participants: If you submit additional drawings, you’ll receive half off the initial entry fee! That’s right —  you can double (or treble, or even quadruple!) your chances of winning the $2,500 grand prize. The One Drawing Challenge entry fee structure until midnight on August 9th is now as follows:

  • First entry: $50 for students, $80 for non-students
  • Second entry: $25 for students, $40 for non-students (50% off!)
  • Any additional entry: $25 for students, $40 for non-students (50% off!)

Every entrant that has already submitted a drawing (either in the early entry period or the regular entry period) is entitled to this offer as well — you’ll get half off your entry fee for every additional submission. If you are yet to submit a drawing, you are still eligible to this discount after you’ve paid for your first entry at the regular price shown above.
