Architosh.com to Co-Sponsor ArchVoices Essay Competition for Third Year in a Row

Architosh.com, one of the leading CAD sites worldwide and the number one Macintosh centric site for all things CAD and 3d, will be co-sponsoring the ArchVoices Essay Competition for intern Architects for the third year in a row, with the second place winner receiving an Apple iPod.

PROVIDENCE, Rhode Island -- February 21, 2005 -- Architosh.com, today announced that it will be cosponsoring the important ArchVoices Essay Competition in 2005. The competition for intern architects is the third time Architosh will be supplying the second place winner with a custom engraved Apple iPod. Last year's second place essay winner -- Tamara Redburn -- received a 20 GB Apple iPod engraved with her name, year, contest and sponsor.

"Architosh is again proud to be a co-sponsor of this important annual moment for the industry, an event that puts emphasis on the craft of professional writing and communication", says Anthony Frausto-Robledo, founder and editor-in-chief of Architosh.com. "As a trained and educated architect myself, I can attest -- and so could many of our readers -- to the difficulty many visual-based learners have to the written word. Written communication is an absolutely vital part of our professional duties, despite the fact that we make drawings all day long."

Matt Ostanik, Assoc. AIA, ArchVoices Essay Competition Chair, wrote in an email thank you note, "on behalf of the ArchVoices Essay Competition Committee, I am writing to thank you again for your company's generous support of our competition. The 2004 competition that concluded last May directly engaged over 180 young architectural professionals across the globe, a 15% increase over the previous year, and it advanced a continuing dialogue about the future of the profession and the importance of critical thinking and writing among young professionals."

In an email from our lucky iPod winner, Tamara Redburn, Assoc. AIA, said, "I want to thank you again for sponsoring the ArchVoices Essay Competition -- I think it's important that companies like yours promote writing by architects."

Architosh.com continues to believe in the value of this essay competition and the focus on an enlightened dialog about the future of the profession. For the 2005 ArchVoices Essay Competition Architosh will again deliver a lucky winner or winners an Apple iPod -- that cultural icon that has grown so popular among young architects and college students around the globe.
