LightWork Design Image Competition results(May 14, 2008)
There was a fantastic response to the competition, with some really outstanding images submitted. Entries came in from across the globe, and from a wide variety of market sectors, each rendered using the LightWorks rendering engine within different software applications. As a result of the number of high quality images received, the Judging Committee decided to award two additional highly commended prizes to Igor Carreira and Doug Caplan in the form of iTunes vouchers.
The winning entry in the inaugural LightWorks Image Competition came from Paal Reksten. Paal works for Opus Architects, an architectural firm in Haugesund, Norway and uses form.Z software, with its integrated LightWorks rendering engine.
"I am delighted that my image has been chosen as the winner of the LightWorks User Image Competition. I use LightWorks on a daily basis to create photorealistic visualisations and artistic illustrations. Its close integration within formZ makes it easy to use, and enables me to create realistic design presentations for my projects within a very short time frame," commented Paal.
"AutoDesSys is extremely pleased to see one of its seasoned users win the LightWorks Image Competition along side many more, worthy entries from other form.Z users as well as other software applications. Congratulations to Paal Reksten. RenderZone Plus, which uses the LightWorks Global Illumination rendering engine has given the modelling capabilities of form.Z a truly competitive edge in the rendering arena," added Alexandra Yessios, VP of Sales & Marketing.
