I have been studying Architecture for the past five years, but then I realize I like to do visualization.

Runner Up

Manuela Oria

Spain | SCHOOL-ING

I have always been attracted to all the things that can be done in front of a computer, but when I was studying industrial design and saw a render for the first time, I thought I wanted to do that. It was there when I decided to focus and start specializing in what I consider to be my passion.

Highly Commended

Alberto Navarro Sánchez

For the past four years my professional profile has been very technical. Now I would like to shift my work towards something more artistic, expertising in modelling and rendering techniques.

Highly Commended

Guilherme Marcondes

Brazil |

Despite holding a Civil Engineering Bachelor's degree I've always been into visual creative stuff. Between 2019 and 2020 I started a course about architectural visualization as a hobby due to my interests in architecture and the CGI world. One year after I finished the course, I got the opportunity to work with an archviz project which was a new product being developed at the company I used to work and that's when I realized I wanted to work with that.

Highly Commended

Sebastià Mercadal

Spain | SCHOOL-ING

My whole life has been remarkably related to design, although I also found time for other hobbies related to art, guitar, and piano playing. The Bachelor in Architecture has taught me about the importance of developing accurate 3d models and pleasant final images. Furthermore, a wide skill-set is key for me that's why I've always combined academic studies with teaching myself how to edit photos and videos. Taking into my background and hobbies, I realize my future was in the ArchViz industry.

Highly Commended

Mateo Parra Arbelaez

When I was studying architecture quite time ago I realise that I was more interested in the visual part of the project than technical stuff, since then I have been learning about archviz.
