Architecture Unchained Visualization Contest

After a very long break in contests, we are back with the new one. I was working hard to make this one happen, and I am sure you will be as excited about it as I am :) This time we’re going to free our minds, liberate our fantasies, unchain our souls! Fly. Fly away. Live in a flying building. Fly in a living structure. Sink into the creativity and get awarded. Sounds prefect, right?

Description: The main aim of the contest is to let people create something unique, futuristic and inspiring at the same time without any limitations and blow a fresh air into their portfolios. Participants will create objects liberated from any gravity and other physical laws to showcase how do they imagine the future of Architecture industry.

Schedule: Final image submission June 30, 2013. Results & winners announcement July 15, 2013.

Conditions: The aim of this contest is to showcase what are we – CGI artists & Architects – capable of. Construction rules? Urban rules? Law? Screw it! You are an artist, act like one.

There is only one strict condition that must be kept – As this is Work in progress challenge, every participant must create his own thread in our Forum and post there his/her WIP images, while other participants will make comments and suggestions for possible improvements. Also, WIP images may help judges to add valuable points when deciding about the winning image ;)

Your image can be an interior, exterior or a mix of both.

You are encouraged to post on the Challenge forum as many WIP images as you can. The minimum requirement is to submit an image for each of these parts – Concept Sketch (Reference images), Environment Model, Accessories modeling, Texturing, Lighting and Rendering, Post production and Final Images. While all WIP images must be published during the whole process in our Forum, final images must be submitted in 2 ways: Either published in the same WIP thread as other images from the author, they must be submitted via email ( with the “CONTEST” as a subject of the email.) as well.
