For the past 10 years, JLL has released its annual Skyline Review: a building-by-building and floor-by-floor assessment of 43 city centers across the country which provides insight, analysis and advice to investors.  But for the first time, JLL is seeking artistic interpretations of these skylines from high school art students.

When: Entries are currently being accepted: deadline for submission is April 17, 2014.

How: JLL is accepting photo submissions via Twitter and Instagram (use hashtags #DesignYourSkyline and #JLL) or via email (

Why: Beyond buildings, skylines represent the hopes and dreams of the urban dwellers who call it home. JLL wants to ignite these ambitions and celebrate all Skylines.
