Vectorworks has announced its fifth annual Vectorworks Design Scholarship. This global competition is open to undergraduate and graduate students in major disciplines related to architecture, landscape architecture, landscape design, entertainment and interior design who can now submit either new or old projects for a chance to win up to $10,000 USD.

"This year's theme is "Design. Submit. Win" and we want students from around the world to do just that," said Vectorworks Marketing Programs Director Alice Lowy. "This is a prime opportunity for students to show off their best work for professional recognition and more, and we look forward to seeing what they come up with."

To apply, students must complete a quick online application providing their contact information followed by details about their project before submitting for consideration. A panel of judges will evaluate submissions based on design, technology, originality, presentation and writing. 

The competition includes a two-round judging process. First-round winners in the UK will each receive £2,000 and will be entered for the chance to win the global grand prize Richard Diehl Award, worth an additional $7,000 USD. Scholarships may be used as winners see fit from tuition to travel. Additionally, winners' colleges or universities will receive free Vectorworks Designer software and free virtual workshop training. 

  Submissions are open now through 31 March 2021. Winners will be announced 16 June 2021. Students can also visit the academic programs page to find additional resources to help with their projects.
