In July we gave you the chance to show us what you can do with Shaderlight with the launch of our latest render contest.We had hundreds of entries from all over the world so thanks to everyone who took part.
After lots of head scratching and discussion, the judges who included Mike Lucey from SketchUcation and Lynette Clee from 3dartist, have finally chosen their top three images which we proudly announced today.
First prize went to David Harris for this fantastic render.
Second prize was awarded to Carrie Barker, architect at Overcash Demmitt Architects in North Carolina.
Finally, third prize went to Duane Kemp of Kemp Productions for this image.
I think you’ll agree – all worthy winners however as we had so many great renders, we wanted to share some of the other entries short-listed by the judges.
All these images and more will appear in our gallery over the next few days so you can enjoy them every time you visit the Shaderlight website.
