Cash prizes were awarded to the winners of the ‘Render Us Speechless’ contest organised by IMAGINiT Technologies , a division of Rand Worldwide.
First place, second place and third place prizes were awarded in each of the three categories of Architecture/Building, Civil/Mapping/GIS and Manufacturing/Mechanical.
First place winners in each of the three categories:
- Architecture/Building: Elitsa Chobanova (Student)
- Civil/Mapping/GIS: Claudio Branch (Freese and Nichols)
- Manufacturing/Mechanical: Michael Bryant (SWBR Architects)
According to Bob Heeg, Executive Vice President, IMAGINiT Worldwide Operations, superior quality of software enables both new and seasoned designers to create stunning renderings.
Likewise, in business, the ability to effectively visualise projects in the planning phase enables firms to win more business faster.
The winning entries were selected by a team of judges from IMAGINiT Technologies. The participating designers use Autodesk 2D and 3D design, engineering and entertainment software.
Submissions came from 13 countries including Australia, Bangladesh, Bulgaria, Belarus, Canada, China, Egypt, United Kingdom, Japan, Netherlands, Singapore, Uruguay and the United States.
Prizes were awarded based on the realism of the image, general composition of the rendering, and overall communication of design intent.
