1) Fairy Tales pushes your creativity to a new level.Sure, you are a master at planning spaces and your taste for design is unparalleled. But do you always design with a story in mind" Fairy Tales encourages you to invent worlds that marry your creativity with a message, and allows you to rethink the way you approach design challenges. With storytelling guiding your design, you?ll never look at architecture the same way again.

2) You?ll be part of something big.The Fairy Tales competition has become a repository of the social and environmental issues that are at the forefront of everyone?s mind on a yearly basis. They capture the zeitgeist of the times in highly imaginative and sometimes tongue-in-cheek ways. The community of designers and creatives who participate each year spans more than 60 countries. In times when the world is often portrayed as a scary, foreign place, Fairy Tales reminds us all that we belong in the global context.
