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 :

    So effectively the Challenge is only for people looking for a job? Doesn’t that eliminate a huge percentage of your readers/audience? It would be great to have another challenge soon like the GH House/Hover challenges of old

    This is not instead of the big yearly challenge, but a new thing in the context of the job board of the blog. The BIG one is coming too 😉

    to understand this, we need to model from the images of Archdaily?
    No model is provided.

  4. ronenbekerman
    ronenbekerman says:

    franciscojp3d You can use those as reference, as well as the plans, elevations and section provided there, or any other source for that matter that will allow you to model the building. 

    A 3d model is not provided.

    So we can change the landscape as much as we want ? You say natural and realistic so if I give it a futurist or post apocalyptic feel for example, is that considered not realistic?

    Min Sadokha says:

    they do like “pdf format” don’t they. from their website to this competition. and 4 pages with just one page visual to show our “client”. ? and everyone will be modeling the same thing? it will be very productive if everyone model something different and share them as a community. or the least ToMmorow can do is to provide us the models. and knowing previous recent competition on this blog, u dont even show all submission/submission style for the sake of learning. we all need to learn from each other . 50-50 on this.

  7. Min Sadokha
    Min Sadokha says:

    & plus, 1 month for one competition/ 1 building with one view archviz does not portray how fast track our industry is in reference to this “job posting competition”. i bet the winning candidate have the privilege to finish one job in one month at Tommorow. Congrats to you in advance.

  8. Min Sadokha
    Min Sadokha says:

    design connected ran a similar “job competition” / apprenticeship a few years back. it runs in stages in one month. @ per week submission. from modelling,technical skills to rendering. i guess thats, a better push factor for a “job competition” .

    ” you are expected to post updates on the challenge section that will go live on the blog by Monday 6 February 2017″. Is it a work in progress? Isn’t it a bit too early for a wip? since the deadline is 1st of march?

    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?

  11. NazarBabiak
    NazarBabiak says:

    Hi Ronen!
    I did’n find any email or adress to send finished work.
    Where to send submission? Directly to you or Tomorrow?

    Thanks!

    the milestone submit form will be in place by monday. so will the final submit form for those of you who are pretty fast 😉
    all entries should be submmited this way so nothing is lost in traffic.

    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… 😉

    kseny says:

    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

  17. NazarBabiak
    NazarBabiak says:

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

  18. toworrowab
    toworrowab says:

    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.

    Hi, when is the deadline to enter the competition? Is posting the updates a condition? 
    Thank you.

  20. toworrowab
    toworrowab says:

    edaneve There is no deadline entry. As long as the submission is posted before the final deadline. But we will follow the challange threads so to be able and share your work and having a good process will also show the professional qualiteis that is required to work for Tomorrow.

    Ronen Bekerman – 3D Architectural Visualization Bl says:

    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.

    In the end they didn’t fulfill their promises by the way. I was one of the winners of that competition. It just went nowhere.

  28. NazarBabiak
    NazarBabiak says:

    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?

    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?

    richson7 says:

    I want to post a new stage of my wip. Have I write the same Project Name / Title If i want to post a new update? Will this new update be added to my first submission?

    ronenbekerman says:

    richson7 All your updates will be under your user so no need to worry. Each update is a new post but clicking your user link will take you to the page with just your updates in it.

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

  34. ronenbekerman
    ronenbekerman says:

    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.

  35. csdr

    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.
    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.

  37. kseny
    kseny says:

    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! Is there a deadline for concept submission as it is half the way almost to the final submission? Will it be a valid application if i submit my concept in 1-2 days and keep on posting WIP following days?

    Dear Ronan, 
    i´ve been following your blog now for over 5 years, regularly visiting. It has been a blog with much inspiration and a place to learn.
    But in the last 2 years it has become a blog that is updated maybe once a month. Most of the time with advertising. I had hopes that this would change but it even got worse with this challenge.
    How can someone who should have a complete grasp of the difficulties in the field of architectural visualizations call out for a job challenge? A contest where you have to work even before you get the job? Whats next? Working the first months for free? A complete portfolio should be more than enough to judge a persons skills and not only 1 rendering.

    Maybe you dont understand where this could lead to. Companies not just offering a job but making it a contest where you have to work on a project to apply for the job. This would make an already difficult industry even harder. Is this your blogs intention?

    Hi,

    I have uploaded my concept around 18th of Feb. but haven’t checked for it at the entries showcase page and now i can’t find it when i am scrolling through the entries. Can i somehow check if it was uploaded or should i do it again? Tnx.

  47. csdr
    csdr says:

    ronenbekerman csdr  So can we upload other renders we did for this project as “Additional Project Images” on Final Entry Milestone?
    Thanks in advance.

    Hi Ronen, I wanted to ask how can I be sure that the final pdf is uploaded? I uploaded the JPG and the 4 pages PDF and everything went well, but I am asking you because on the page only the JPG are showed and the PDF are not, so I just wanted to be sure that everything went well. 
    Thank you.
