Tomorrow 2017 Challenge

A new and exciting challenge is about to begin! Tomorrow is looking for the next star for their Stockholm office, and we decided to go about this differently. A Challenge was born, awarding the best submission with 2000 Euro cash prize and a well-paid full-time position at Tomorrow with benefits such as social welfare, exercise bonus, field-trips and most of all become a proud Tomorrow team member.

Your Mission

Your assignment is to create an absolutely stunning interpretation of Tham & Videgård´s Art Museum in Sweden.

The exterior image should be shown from eye level. You are in charge of directing light, shading, composition, design and story after your own liking. We are looking for artists with technical problem-solving skills combined with a strong artistic sense. The image should be natural and realistic rather than over stylized.

Only the building has to follow the architect’s plans. Plans, references, and inspiration can be found on archdaily and here (photography by Lindman Photography) :


For the rendering inspiration, refer to the Maxwell Render “The Museum” Challenge.

We will judge upon creativity, working process and final result.

Deadline & Deliverables

Final submission 1 March 2017, but you are expected to post updates on the Tomorrow Challenge Section that will go live on the blog by Monday 6 February 2017 is already live on the blog!

Pay attention to the fact that all entries are anonymous, until we select the winner.

Please keep to that policy when you write text inside your entries and comment on the updates.

The final works is to be submitted in a 4-page PDF in A4 Landscape Format :

  • page 1 : Final image.
  • page 2 : Your work process, sketches, palette, work in progress.
  • page 3 : Your references for mood, light, composition, props, etc.
  • page 4 : Explain your working progress in words. Step by step, what’s the storyline, how did you break down the process, what difficulties did you have, what would you have done different if you could redo the assignment.

GOOD LUCK

Ronen & Tomorrow 😉

P.S.

Here is an example for the 4 paged PDF :

Hi Ronen and Tomorrow,


Couple of questions here:

1. For the final, do we have to make 4 paged PDF as your example or just upload the final image at the "Final Entry" submission.

2. I would like to make couple more images for this project if there is time, where should I submit them? Work Process?


Thanks.

Hi Ronen, for every updates  ( say w.i.p. updates ) do we need to fill up again the Proj. Name / Title , Milestone short description? thanks ...

ronenbekerman
ronenbekerman moderator

@BcnArkitek @ronenbekerman @richson7 Yes... the text should be related to the update and not the overall project. While not ideal, this format for a challenge is a first as I work towards the future challenge system - the one big challenges will run on too! 


After the deadline I will ask you all to send me feedback on this experience so I can improve before the next challenge.

Hi Ronen.


I  think that showing other participants your personal WIP during the contest process is not a good idea at all. While you trying to be unique, others may catch up your idea and use it for their own entry.

@NazarBabiak @ronenbekerman @BcnArkitek @richson7 Sorry to intervene :) I think it is another approach to competition. It makes you wonder and search harder for ideas. Also you see other people working ways, which doesnt occur very often. 

Even following without participating is very interesting. In the end of the day, we dont invent new science, one with better techniques will overcome the other, even following similar ideas.

Hi, I think there is problem with other peoples work page, it seems 3 pages. But when I go to 2nd or 3rd, I see this 

'Nothing Found. Sorry, the post you are looking for is not available'. 


Does it happen to anyone else?

this is resovled. can you confirm?

Thank you Ronen, working just fine since yesterdey!

Ok, let's clear this thing I was asking before.

Is it necessary to post your work process before final submission? Let's say I don't want my workflow, sketches and concept to be seen by any of the other participants. I only want to submit the final package just before March 1st and I want it to be seen by the Tomorrow and Tomorrow only. 

Is this ok?

Well, that is because it is a different login system... sorry, but that thing is still work in progress on my side. Until I get the SSO (Single Sign-On) feature live - that will be the case. So just create a new user for the blog... THOSE OF YOU WHO already uploaded a showcase entry (the usual ones for the Best of Week and AAA) directly on the blog - YOU ALREADY have a login so use that.

Hi Ronen, is the submittion restricted to one image? Can I submit two images in a single pdf or in two different pdfs? (sorry if the message is repeated, it seems previous one wasnt posted)

Thanks

Hi Ronen! Is it restricted to one image only? Can more images be submitted?

toworrowab

We will only judge upon one Image to make it fair for everyone. However if you choose to do additional images it will show your ambition.

One question: to win the 2000 euro prize, do I need to accept the job? It should be amazing to live in Stockholm, but I am trying to run my own business here in Brazil right now. Not that I am so secure to win this challenge, but just in case... ;)

@ronenbekerman
Ok, Thank you Ronen.
I feel unclear about necessity of milestones... But why couldn't we submit only the final PDF?

Hi Ronen -- I was looking at all the floorplans for the Museum. There is another building directly adjacent to the actual art museum. For the purposes of this challenge, is it acceptable to completely leave that building out?

ronenbekerman
ronenbekerman moderator

@andregonweb If we did not address this specifically in the rules and terms then you can decide... You can leave it out if you want.
