Architecture Competition: 2021 Portfolio Competition | Larsen Liverpool


Larsen Liverpool are encouraging all students to take part in our 2021 International portfolio competition. We are working to create a platform for designers to share and exhibit their work.

This competition requires you to submit a digital portfolio that demonstrates talent and artistic abilities within your creative field.

We are looking for students who are varied in their artistic approach and display a range of skills. We are looking for a clear and consistent aesthetic rhythm throughout your portfolio that exhibits a range of projects.

There are no restrictive/specific layout requirements as we do not wish for you to create new a portfolio just for this submission, but rather use the work that you already have, as you would present to a prospective employer. We are looking for personality and individuality to come through and do not want every portfolio to look the same – each piece should be represented how the artist intended.

The competition will be judged by a talented and multidisciplinary set of jurors, who work across a number of creative sectors. Winners of this competition will receive a cash prize and their portfolios will be exhibited on our website and across all of our social media channels. This will give the winner an opportunity to showcase their incredible work and make connections with potential employers.

Larsen Liverpool Ltd are an environmentally and sustainability minded company and we are determined to make the world a better place than we found it by reducing our global impact and carbon footprint.

One tree will be planted in a key reforestation project for each participant that signs up to one of our competitions.


We are providing an opportunity to showcase your skill and creativity. This competition is open to all student artists, creators, and designers from any creative discipline. Our award winning and multitalented jury work across different sectors of the creative industry.

We are trying to gain momentum by hosting this, and future, competitions so that we may create a platform for designers to share their work and have their say! Many competition hosts select a small group of work to put forward and display and many of the amazing projects that are produced are not displayed. We want to celebrate your hard work and showcase it within our virtual gallery! Register now and take part to have your work showcased.
