“The decisive moment. It is the simultaneous recognition, in a fraction of a second, of the significance of an event as well as the precise organization of forms which gives that event its proper expression” Henri Cartier-Bresson
Chaos Group are a software development studio who provide rendering solutions for the architectural, automotive, VFX, film, media and entertainment industries. Their V-Ray rendering engine is 10 years old this year and to celebrate the 10 year anniversary they have introduced the V-Ray Anniversary Challenge. The challenge is to create a single image using any application that tells a decisive moment in time. It can be an historical moment in time, a picture that altered society or history, or it could be a personal pivotal moment. The only rule is that the end product must be rendered in V-Ray. The challenge closes July 15th 2012. To be in with a chance of winning see the competition website.
The event is sponsored by some big names like NVidia, Boxx and Maxon to name a few, so the prizes are pretty phenomenal. First place prize includes $3000 cash prize courtesy of Chaos Group and a 3DBoxx 3960 XTREME Workstation with NVidia Quadro & Tesla GPUs and much more.
