It’s time to get your best architectural visualizations ready — the 2nd Annual One Rendering Challenge is on its way! Now open for entries, the most inspiring ideas competition of the Fall poses a single, compelling question: Can you tell a story about architecture with a single rendering?
Architizer is thrilled to announce that, once again, two Top Winners — one student and one non-student — will each win a $2,500 Grand Prize! To ensure you are in the running, hit the button below and get started on your submission:
This year, every finalist — amounting to an amazing 100 renderings — will be published on Architizer Journal and celebrated with Architizer’s global community of architects and designers. With 7.5M followers across multiple platforms, the buzz promises to be huge!
Your task is simple: Create one rendering that powerfully communicates an architectural form or space and the experience of those that would inhabit it. Your visualization can be located anywhere in the world and be at any scale. It can take the form of a perspective, parallel projection, section, abstract or any other image format. As long as it is a computer-generated visualization that portrays part or all of a building or group of buildings, it is eligible.
Finalist Renderings will be reviewed by a stellar jury of industry leaders from the world of architectural visualization, with each entry being judged on the following 3 criteria: Communication, Aesthetics, and Impact. Check out the detailed judging criteria here.
Thanks to some amazing software, renderings now have the ability to represent architecture — existing or proposed — with an incredible degree of photorealism. With hundreds of glossy visualizations now being produced every day, the best CG artists must do more to stand out, injecting atmosphere, emotion and a clear narrative into their work.
