Nemetschek Vectorworks and MAXON Computer Reveal Global Rendering Competition Winners

Columbia, Md. (Sept. 13, 2012) – Nemetschek Vectorworks, Inc. and MAXON Computer GmbH 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 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.
  • Monochromatic Winner: “Thatch Retreat, Chester, SC” by Pursley Dixon Architecture from Charlotte, North Carolina, USA

    Judgessummary: 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.
  • Fan Favorite Winner: “Bachelor thesis work: house of literature for herzogenaurach” by Nicolai von Stromberg-Zapfe, architecture student from Nürnberg, Germany

“By adding a new category for monochromatic models, we were able to see a completely different type of rendering,” explains Theresa Downs, Communications Director at Nemetschek Vectorworks, Inc. “It definitely added some variety to the competition.”

"I was excited to see designers using both CINEMA 4D and Vectorworks software to showcase their creations,” says Dirk Beichert, Marketing Director at MAXON Computer GmbH. “We congratulate the winners and are excited about our continued marketing and technology partnership with Nemetschek Vectorworks.”

The panel of judges included Dan Jansenson, principal at Daniel Jansenson Architect and author of Remarkable Renderworks, from Santa Monica, CA; Tyler Littman, principal designer and owner of Sholight, LLC, from New York, NY; Nicholas Dunand, freelance designer and sculptor, from Melbourne, Australia; Erik Recke, freelance architectural visualizer at Datenland, from Hamburg, Germany; Alejandro Nogueira, CEO at DECC Arte 3D from Tecamachalco, Edo. de Mexico, Mexico; René Racz from Lichtmaschine Multimedia GmbH, Basel, Switzerland; and Shinya Fujimura from 3D-KOBO, Osaka, Japan.
