Competition introduction

Competition organisers

AAPPAREL Architects' Apparel, in partnership with Bee Breeders Architecture Competition Organisers, would like to invite you to enter an international t-shirt design competition, simply titled “The Architect's T-Shirt”!

AAPPAREL are asking for architecture enthusiasts to create a design that is a representation of the medium, whether this focuses on great works of architecture, events, the biggest industry challenges, or characteristics of those in the field.

Designs can be anything from visualisations to caricatures, to texts, so long as they encapsulate the participant’s concept of what should be known as the architect’s t-shirt. 

Competition participants are asked to submit a white on black background, A3 size portrait oriented illustration (vertical) + 250-characters-long design description.
