The ELEMENTAL 2 Awards have been judged by a highly talented group of industry leaders. To reflect the broad range of work created using Autodesk digital content creation solutions we chose ten categories in which the ELEMENTAL 2 Awards were judged in. Award recipients demonstrated an outstanding fusion of artistic and technical excellence. Master (gold) and Excellence (silver) awards were given in the following categories:
Abstract/Design - Recognizes the most outstanding image that is predominantly abstract. The artist’s design and artistic expression are paramount in creating an image that defies categorization and excels in its pure design and visual appeal. Award Winner >>
Architectural Exterior - Awards the best exterior architectural visualization, independent of style or setting. This category tests the artist’s ability to create a space that is not just believable, but inspirational and evokes a desire to visit the location/building/space. Award Winner >>
Architectural Public Interior - Awards the best interior architectural visualization, independent of style or setting. This category tests the artist’s ability to create an interior setting that is not just believable, but inspirational and evokes a desire to visit the space. Award Winner >>
Architectural Reconstruction - Awards the best architectural reconstruction of an existing landmark. This category tests the artist¹s ability to recreate a structure that exists right down to the weathered materials that make up the structure and its intricate details. Award Winner >>
Architectural Residential Interior - Awards the best interior architectural visualization of living spaces, independent of style or setting. This category tests the artist¹s ability to create an interior setting that is not just functional, but also welcoming. Award Winner >>
Character in Action - Honors the highest achievement in capturing the sheer power, energy and elegance of a character in motion. Although many digital artists aspire to create animations that come to life, it is a rare talent to capture expressive motion frozen in a moment in time. Award Winner >>
Character in Repose - Recognizes the greatest talent in bringing a character to life. This encompasses technical skill, believability, composition and, most of all, emotion. Award Winner >>
Environment - Recognizes the best set or location whether indoors, outdoors, underwater, or in space. The artist's ability to evoke a sense of wonder and a wish to see more is paramount. This category demands a combination of artistic interpretation, detail and lighting to create a believable and enticing environment. Award Winner >>
Gaming/Broadcast Design - Awards the best examples of moving art found in gaming and broadcast mediums such as advertisements, music videos, trailers and in-game models. Successful entries, using either high or low polygon counts, featured expressive characters, detailed environments, great visual effects, or believable vehicles. Award Winner >>
Product Design - Awards the most outstanding image that demonstrates excellence in technical design and execution. This includes the intricacy of the product design and the technical excellence of the modelling, texturing, and lighting. Award Winner >>
   
Transport - Awards the best device for moving about in. The defining quality sought after here is the artist's ability to capture and evoke the desire to travel to a place, or by a mode of transport or to travel in a particular way. Award Winner >>

  "I wouldn't underestimate exposure - it can have value that lasts long after the money is spent. This industry (and the art world in general) is a very competitive world. The more people that see your name and art, the better your chances are of being hired for more work." Meats Meier, artist and EXPOSÉ 1 Master Award recipient
