DesignStory - An Online Photo-Video Competition

ARCH has crafted ‘DesignStory’ - An Online Photo-Video Competition aimed at gathering the Best Visual Observations & Commentaries on Design from students in the age group of 16 to 25 years across India. The intent of the competition is to build an awareness of the Design that surrounds us, to share stories, realizations & observations, which have the power to “TOUCH, MOVE & INSPIRE” us, and to reveal the possibilities of our incredible creative potential to build solutions.
It seems worthwhile to shine a light on everyday life, its situations and challenges, on the objects & creations of existence - music, art & crafts, sports, communications, traffic, pollution, garbage, the neighborhood ‘paani puri wala’ and diverse other societal stimulations in our taking, giving, living and working lives, - and find delightful connections, and record the visible & invisible elements of the success or failure of Design and communicate them through Photographs or Video and a short written Commentary!
The Event was launched by film actor, Zayed Khan on 29th August, 2016. The Event and Competition will be covered by a Leading Design Magazine of India along with ‘Backstitch’- Arch’s Monthly Design Magazine, which has a readership of over 10,000 per issue across India.
Last date of submission of entries is 21st October, 2016. The details of the competition are available at
