We, along with our sister company MAXON Computer, are pleased to announce the winners of the second annual Inspired Visions Global Rendering Competition.
There were a large number of entries from around the world, with the most submissions coming from Germany, the United States, New Zealand, and the Dominican Republic. All valid entries were evaluated by a jury and a panel of judges, and a “Fan Favorite” was chosen by public vote. The winner in each category will receive $2,500 USD. The winners are:
CINEMA 4D Winner: “Digital Exhibition” by Oliver Higgins, Architect and Visualizer now working at Franklin Ellis Architects in the UK.
Judges’ summary: This video was innovative, professional, and graphically pleasing. We were impressed with how the creator integrated legacy presentations via a concept-board into the video. The board elements were dynamic rather than just still images. It was a wonderful way of presenting an urban planning model.
Fan Favorite Winner: “Bachelor thesis work: house of literature for herzogenaurach” by Nicolai von Stromberg-Zapfe, architecture student from Nürnberg, Germany
Monochromatic Winner: “Thatch Retreat, Chester, SC” by Pursley Dixon Architecture from Charlotte, North Carolina, USA
Judges’ summary: This entry was evocative, poetic, and inspirational. The designer had excellent control of lighting and depth of field. The house in the distance fit perfectly into the scene, and the level of detail on the materials was remarkable.
Vectorworks Renderworks 2012 Winner: “Youth Centre Vienna” by Steve Böswetter from Vienna, Austria
Judges’ summary: This rendering was highly realistic, and showcased an excellent control of lighting, color and textures (especially on the white concrete areas). It was a clear and attractive illustration.
