Architectural Record is searching for an architect whose big ideas have begun with a drawing on a plain cocktail napkin.  Most of us have been there, maybe not on a cocktail napkin, but perhaps with a sketch sheet of paper laying around.  See below for the rules on how to enter Architectural Record’s Cocktail Napkin Sketch contest.

If you are a practicing architect in the United States (or trained as one), you can enter this remarkable contest. All you need is a white cocktail napkin and a pen to demonstrate that the art of the sketch is still alive. The winning submission will be published in the August 2010 issue of architectural record and online.  In addition, the winner will receive a box of cocktail napkins with the winning sketch printed on them!) Contest runners-up will be included in the online Cocktail Napkin Sketch Gallery. Judges for this contest are architectural record editors.
