The largest annual creative challenge in the world, brought to you by Blank Space in partnership with the National Building Museum, Archdaily, Archinect & Bustler. Over the last four 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 diffidence. In a time like this, storytelling might be the most powerful tool to unlock universal truths and rediscover what matters. Register today and start crafting your fairy tale.

Fairy Tales 2018 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 will craft a text narrative, along with 5 images, in the most spectacular way possible.
