Want to see some of the best architectural delineations in the world? You’ve come to the right place because today is a special day. Collected here for you to get your architectural eye candy fix, are the 2015 winners and finalists from the 41st annual Ken Roberts Memorial Delineation Competition, the longest running architectural delineation competition in the world.
The competition for this event is typically ridiculously strong and this year was no different. With over 424 Total Entries (the highest number of entries in the history of the competition) from over 28 different countries, selecting the winners is no easy task. This year’s jury was made up of 3 amazing delineators in their own right, which consisted of John Maruszczak, Steve Oles, and Michael Rojkind.
I have been lucky to have chaired this competition in the early days – my claim to fame was instituting a category for digital submissions, which at the time was a hotly contested decision. I recommend that you head over to the official Ken Roberts Competition web site and take a look at all the recognized entries (finalists and winners) from this year and the last 11 years! It’s a huge repository of architectural eye-candy.
All of these images can and should be clicked upon so that they can be viewed closer to their original submission size. The detail is vastly improved and I promise, seeing these images larger is well worth your time.
I hope you can appreciate the time, effort, skill, and dedication to their craft that each of these illustrators has demonstrated. Makes me want to get out my sketch book and try to start working on my own delineation skills. I don’t think that I will ever approach the level of skill demonstrated by these winners – but not many people ever will.
Cheers and Happy Delineating!
