1st Edition – 2017

ARCHVIZ ACADEMY AWARDS

After a long development time, we’re finally ready for this great moment that we would like to dedicate to our industry.

The AAA is the recognition that we will award to the artists and companies that this year has created something remarkable and in some way encourage a different approach to the architectural visualization. Thanks to the collaboration with our Media Partner, Ronen Bekerman, the categories awarded are “Still images”, “Animations” and “Realtime”.

On this page dedicated to the AAA, we have published information about the awards, judges and more. The award ceremony took place at the closing of AademyDay#8 on October 7th, 2017 at the DoubleTree Hilton Hotel in Mogliano Veneto.

RULES

01 – Works done during SOA Master Classes will not be considered during the selection process.

02 – Works done using models provided by others such as the GH House or MS House will not be considered (this could apply to any other model provided free online).

03 – For being included in the AAA, any submission must have been created in 2017 or made public in 2017. There are no restrictions on submitting entries that have been submitted to other competitions or previously published in public. Show us your good stuff!

04 – You can upload as many projects as you like – the best one will be picked for the awards selection process.

05 – You must have permission to submit your work publicly for the AAA. Don’t worry though, if you failed to obtain the proper permission; we’ll just ignore your entry for the AAA.

06 – Submitting for the AAA means that your submission(s) could be used by SOA, Polytown Media LTD and the AAA Sponsors for marketing purposes and that you agree to that. The work is yours, and you obviously keep the copyright to it. You will be given full credit whenever and wherever it is used, and we’ll try to notify you about it as well so you can see it.

07 – If we don’t get enough submissions per category, we’ll either scrap it or add it to a category that did get enough entries.

08 – Once the winner’s selection is made, they are final. This is not exact math! Just keep that in mind 😉

09 – You agree to all the above if you want to be considered for the AAA.
