The Vineyard / Unreal Engine Challenge Launched

Today, I’m very happy to launch “The Vineyard” Challenge in partnership with Epic Games and Nvidia as main sponsors, aimed at leading the architectural visualisation field into an exciting new chapter of realtime visualisation and interactivity exploration. Building on top of previous architectural visualisation challenges held on my blog, this time I’m calling upon challenges to join and let your creative minds run wild while using Epic’s Unreal Engine 4 to create your entries. You can join as a solo artist or a team. Great prizes are dedicated to both!

PETER GUTHRIE HDRI Skies Submitted Image Winner / Maciej Kozlowski

Congratulations to Maciej Kozlowski for winning the second stage of the August 2014 PETER GUTHRIE HDRi Skies giveaway! During the month of August I held that giveaway and the first winner was randomly selected from all who commented in the original PETER GUTHRIE HDRi Skies giveaway post. Maciej’s architectural subject and coastal location were blended very well with Peter’s 1044 Overcast HDRi Sky, resulting in a beautifully moody and compelling visual which awards him a complete set of 45 skies from Series No. 1! Big thanks to Peter Guthrie for sponsoring this giveaway and to all who took part in it… see you in the next one!

Designconnected Submitted Image Winner / Alexander Nozadze

Congratulations to Alexander Nozadze for winning the second stage of the August 2014 DesignConnected giveaway! During the month of August I held that giveaway and the first winner was randomly selected from all who commented in the original DesignConnected giveaway post. Alexander’s frontal camera composition, focusing on Philippe Starck’s MYWORLD sofa for Cassina, might be simple but it works. That, and the emphasis made with well placed lights awards Alexander with 15 models of his choice. Big thanks to DesignConnected for sponsoring this giveaway and to all who took part in it… see you in the next one!
