#Time2Sketch is a national drawing competition hosted each year by ABS. The event encourages participants to take an hour out of their day to draw around a set theme (revealed on the day) and raise money to support the work of the charity. Entries will be judged and there will be prizes for the most imaginative and creative work.

ABS also creates a colouring notebook which will feature the top work submitted. All donations through signing up will go toward supporting those in need within the architectural community.


How it works:

The theme will only be announced at 11:00 on the day of the competition. Once you register, the theme will be sent to your registered e-mail address.
The judges will select a winner and two runner-ups. A selection of the judges favourites will be included in the #Time2Sketch colouring Book 2021. We will announce the judges over the coming weeks.

Submissions will only be accepted via our email, however:
Please do upload your entry to Instagram, Twitter or Facebook, using the hashtag #Time2Sketch2021. It really helps to raise our profile as a charity and allows us to share all of your great work!

Required materials & tools:

Suitable camera or scanner to upload your image.

Digital work (i.e. drawn on an iPad or Photoshop) is not allowed.


General Admission: £7.00

General Admission with Printed Colouring Book: £10.50

Colouring Book: £5.00 (created and sent after the event)
