Architectural Record was deluged with submissions for its third annual cocktail-napkin sketch contest. The jury of editors evaluated nearly 1,000 napkins from over 300 entrants.

In the professional category, the jury awarded cocktail napkin sketches that ranged from quick sketches of iconic buildings to whimsical studies on the design process. The jurors generally favored sketches that looked more like late-night handiwork done in a dimly lit bar than carefully crafted renderings.
