Poster Competition

RTC North America 2016 Competition Prizes Proudly sponsored by

RTC North America 2016 is running a competition for all registered attendees. Entries will be judged against all relevant prize categories by your fellow attendees. Each category will have a winner and runner up prize. Prizes will consist of an iPad Pro (9.7 inch, 128GB, Wi-Fi + Cellular) for the winner and a price worth $600 for the runner up. Winning entries from the 2015 competition are shown below.

The competition will be judged by your fellow attendees and awarded on the basis of the 'best' BIM work. Unlike previous years, it is no longer required that the work reflect a primarily Revit workflow, and indeed we would encourage the submission of work using other tools. We do, however, require that the work reflect a strong basis in BIM tools (Autocad/Microstation need not apply...) The committee reserves the right to disqualify any entries which do not reflect a strong BIM basis, or which do not comply with the competition Terms and Conditions. Furthermore a single entry may win more than one category, and this will then be awarded at the discretion of the RTC Committee.

Competition Categories

Documentation

This section is intended to showcase 2D documentation / annotation work carried out within the BIM environment. We have had especially strong entries in this category in previous years; show us the next generation of BIM documentation to take this one out.

Innovation

This prize showcases the efforts of you or your organisation to push the boundaries of what is possible using today’s tools - not simply wild and woolly building designs, we are interested in projects and processes that stretch the use of the tools in new directions, and explore new ways to achieve desired results. Entries can include work integrating other software, but only where those program results are then brought into Revit to achieve the end product.

Integration

This prize will go to the entry that best demonstrates the coordination of all disciplines within a single project. Material in the entry may be from multiple products, but it must demonstrate the multi-discipline nature of the project to qualify for the prize.

Presentation

In the presentation section we are looking for examples of work demonstrating the best of presentation techniques incorporating BIM. Note that this does NOT necessarily mean rendering! Layout, proportions, and most importantly, the successful conveying of your message are all vital to a quality presentation. Work can be a single image or a page layout; rendered, shaded, or other format images; or anything else that centres around presenting your work to others.
