Over the last five years, the Fairy Tales competition has captured the imagination of thousands of participants from around the world. Today, the competition returns to inspire creatives and designers at a time when the world is struggling to distinguish fact from fiction – when real news is often grim and scary, and “fake news” sows discord and difference. In a time like this, storytelling might be the most powerful tool to unlock universal truths and rediscover what matters.
Fairy Tales 2019 is open to all, and invites architects, designers, writers, artists, engineers, illustrators, students and creatives to submit their own unique architectural fairy tales. A successful entry combines a text narrative with 5 images in the most spectacular way possible. Beyond that, the rules are yours to create, bend, and break.
