Three dimensional modeling not only gives speed to quickly determine the existing conditions of the surrounding areas, but also precision and control, aiding the professionals to perfectly visualize the scenarios, which is why the demand for virtual 3D models has been rapidly increasing with time. 

Vimania has come up with yet another innovative international competition named Vimania Architecture Competition, based on an interesting confluence of virtual modeling and architectural  skills. Instead of consuming time and energy over architectural models, this competition highlights the essence of virtual architecture models, showcasing augmented reality with all necessary details. The virtual models not only help us in exploring the flow of time in the evolutionary series of buildings from different eras but also provide us with the opportunity to create a new philosophy of historical development of architecture. 

Aim: 

The architecture competition seeks to invite participants to submit 3d models of buildings from their country, specifically their region.

Type of procedure:

Participation in the competition is free of charge.

Competition is open for:

1. Architects, designers, civil engineers, landscape architects, structural engineers,urban planners, students.
2. A group of no more than 7 participants. 

Best models will be selected to feature under augmented reality applications.

Participants can create 3D models in 2 categories:

3d model of a modern building with unique details inherent in your region, 
3d model of a historic building or monument which is not far from you.

Building models should contain photo realistic textures and at the same time be geometrically optimized, do not contain interior details and various elements that are not visible from the outside. 

Optimum format of models: 3ds. Also files in format Sketch-up 2015 are accepted.

Deadlines:

1. Close of registrations — November 29, 2017
2. Submission deadline — November 30, 2017 (midnight)
3. Public voting — until January 10, 2018
4. Jury session — until January 31, 2018.
5. Announcement of the winner — February 2018.

Total Prize Fund: € 12,500

The Prize Fund will be divided between categories in the proportions: 85% — 1st prize, 15% for additional prizes. This ratio can be changed on the initiative of the sponsors and partners of the competition.
In addition, 20 participants of the competition will be included in the shortlist. All shortlisted projects will be used to create augmented reality applications and will also be offered to the competition partners for publications and exhibitions. The winner project and the winners of the additional categories will take pride of place at our exhibitions and presentations.
