The American Society of Architectural Illustrators announces the Call For Entries for Architecture in Perspective 27.   This exhibit which in my opinion was responsible for the advancement of architectural illustration (now visualization).

Before the internet, this annual juried international exhibit and accompanying catalogue was the only way to see what the visual state of the profession was.  The mostly sole practitioners rarely met each other and really had no way to discuss their artwork.  By competing with each other, each artist went the year thinking about the images they saw at the previous year’s exhibit and were encouraged to better their own work.  For the profession, that was a major turning point in the overall quality of work being produced.

By getting accepted into the exhibit, you will have an excellent marketing piece to share with the world, receive an award even better!  One of the reasons that professional organizations exist is to give members awards and therefore a marketing opportunity. That is a great reason to join ASAI.

Competition Details

Professional Entries – Monday, January 31, 2012

Student Entries – Monday, February 13, 2012

If you need additional information or would like a poster and entry form to be sent to you, please contact ASAI headquarters on 760-453-2544 or [email protected]

This came into my inbox and I thought I would share it with Presenting Architecture.  It does involve registering at another portfolio site but coming from someone who runs a directory site, another link to your work is a good thing. The judges seem to be a well rounded and respected group of people to get your work in front of as well.  Basically, you join the site, pay $10 per image to enter and at the least you get another online portfolio.  The actual prizes are quite substancial.  Your Final Deadline is Tuesday, December 20th at Midnight.
