We’ve talked about the previous Fairy Tales competitions in the past (2014 competition, 2015 competition, and 2015 winners) and now Blank Space has launched Fairy Tales 2016, its third edition. The competition invites all types of creatives (architects, designers, writers, artists, engineers, illustrators, and even students) to submit their own architectural fairy tales.
