Live it. Sketch it. Share it.

Design Competition

Do you like to draw? Do you have a story to tell? Enter the "Live it. Sketch it. Share it." design competition to win some really cool stuff!

Simply create a drawing on the theme "My Story" using the Autodesk® SketchBook® Express app.

  • Maybe it’s a moment in your life that stands out.
  • It could be a character you’ve created, or a drawing of a favorite pet.
  • Or perhaps it’s something that symbolizes your culture.

From abstract art and traditional drawing to sketching, painting, or doodling—we’re looking for it all. Sketch what moves you, what inspires you, and what makes you happy!
