The Architecture Drawing prize was launched in 2017 by Make Architects , Sir John Soane’s Museum and the World Architecture Festival. The prize, sponsored by Iris Ceramica Group, was established to celebrate and showcase the art and skill of architectural drawing in three categories: hand-drawn, hybrid and digital.


Established in 2017, the Prize is a collaboration between Make, Sir John Soane’s Museum and the World Architecture Festival. The annual competition, sponsored by Iris Ceramica Group, receives entries from around the world across its three categories: hand-drawn, digital and hybrid. Past and present judges include Ken Shuttleworth, artists Ben Langlands and Nikki Bell, and Foster + Partners’ head of design communication Narinder Sagoo.

In 2022, the prize attracted 138 entries with a strong majority of hand-drawn entries. As in previous years, the submissions have come from architects, designers and students from around the world, attesting to the truly international nature of the Prize and the great skill and originality of entrants. Winning and shortlisted drawings will be displayed at Sir John Soane’s Museum from February 2023.

Entries for 2023 will open in July 2023.
