What should I submit?
The world is large and so are the number of possibilities to be taken in remodeling it. Don’t be afraid to experiment in all directions! Combine materials, textures, colors and forms to express your unique vision. We welcome renderings of architecture, designs, inventions, prototypes, media, entertainment, and anything you think can help make the world better in some way.
What software can I use?
You can use any software to model your vision, but be sure to render in V-Ray or Corona, on any platform with a legitimately acquired license.
