Open Screen Limited is now accepting submissions for its "Archisketch Drawing Contest", with more than $2,500 in prize monies to be won. The competition is free to enter and it’s open to all existing and potential users of Archisketch. The competition aims to demonstrate the wide variety of work that can be produced using Archisketch on the iPad.

About Archisketch

Archisketch is a scale-aware sketching program that’s ideal for architects, interior and landscape designers, product designers, design students, or anyone who does design work on an iPad.

Archisketch updates the traditional technique of sketching on a tracing pad and transfers it to sketching on an iPad. The app allows architects and designers to visualize, capture and explore their ideas using layers, symbols, colours, dimension guidelines, 2D grids, isometric and axonometric 3D grids, and even smart one- and two-point 3D perspective. When finished, drawings (up to A1 in size) can be printed to scale directly from the iPad, or exported to PDF, which can be included in a CAD application, or uploaded to Adobe Creative Cloud.
