Winners

On behalf of the sponsors and judges, The Rookies would like to congratulate the following category winners.

Winner

Emil Rasmussen

emilras

Denmark | 3D College

When i first started doing CG, I had very little experience with computer work and this was a new world for me. I had no idea where it would lead to, and that I would be this obsessed with it. I enjoy the mix of creativity and technical skills required for this kind of work, and I definitely enjoy the process more than the result.

Runner Up

And when I was 19 I Discovered the magical world of CG. It started out as a hobby for me while living with my parents. and I really enjoyed it. so I decided to start at the school 3D College Denmark. And that's when I got really hooked. The environment the school gave me really helped a lot. and that's when I realized CG was for me

Highly Commended

Gino Giampaolo

ginogiampaolo

Spain | SCHOOL-ING

The first question I've been asked and I'm already struggling not to talk about my deep dark secrets. I guess I've been in the creative media since very little when I realized I found most pleasure in music, painting, and human behavior. I spent the first half of my 31 years developing skills as a classical musician and the other half studying and later working in architecture. The Archviz industry kinda opened for me quite seamlessly.

Highly Commended

Susana Rodriguez Gandia

Highly Commended

Melissa More Flores

Spain | School-ing

I always felt an inner need to express and to explore things around me through images. As I grew older this interest led me to experience with painting and photography; eventually made me discover Interior Design and consequently ArchViz, which has become a passion for all the challenges and possibilities it provides to create beautiful images.

I realized that this is what I want for my future job when I got introduced in the world of 3D and its' possibilities. The fact that you can translate the way that you perceive the world in a visual form is incredibly amusing for me!
