WAF Visualisation Prize

WAF Visualisation Prize
Supported by:

The Visualisation Prize is a brand new prize for this year World Architecture Festival and a natural addition to our already popular Photography and Drawing competitions.

Supported by Lumion, rendering software specialist, this new prize will invite those have been shortlisted in the main 2019 WAF Awards to submit a rendering video of their shortlisted projects.

Entries are open to any visualisation videos of a future project or recently completed building with a length of up to 3 minutes. Projects must be a combined entry between the visualiser and the architectural practice or just the practice if the rendering was made in-house.

Each entry needs to be a video and not a succession of images.

Lumion has put together a selection of films for inspiration for your entry:


Entry Criteria:

Free to enter. Only available to those have been shortlisted in the main 2019 WAF Awards.

The film must be:

  1. Up to 3 minutes only
  2. Rendering Video and not images

The judges will be looking for:

  1. Aesthetic: The quality and the visual of the video – It needs to look good
  2. Emotional: How the video is showing the project and how it makes you feel
  3. Technical: How the colours, shadows and details look and how they improve the visual of the project and likeability
  4. Comparison: How the original design is representing in the video and does it match with the drawing phase

What happens if you are shortlisted or win?

The shortlisted and winning films will be displayed on a dedicated Visualisation Prize exhibition stand at this year's festival in Amsterdam for all delegates to view.
