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!

As you all know, It was always my aim to host at least one major ArchVIZ challenge per year, But after “The Museum” Duo I knew the next one had to break new grounds. Seeing Epic’s Open World Kite Real-Time Demo in Unreal Engine 4 sparked my imagination and so it happens that the opportunity to bring realtime gaming technology to the world of architectural visualisation, highlights not only the versatility of Unreal Engine, but also opens the door for a new concept of visualisation, where the use of interactive animations and immersive VR will be increasingly relevant.
