Formats:

CATEGORY: STILL
A Still is defined as a picture that has been created predominantly using 3D software. However, a mixture with real elements is allowed as well as touch ups using 2D paint software. The focus is on the modelling of objects, how materials have been used, and how the lighting and perspective have been implemented considering the picture's message. The use of new technologies and the submission's originality will also be evaluated.

CATEGORY: FILM
This category serves as a reservoir for films that have been created predominantly using 3D software, as well as compositings. The focus is on how authentic and convincing 3D objects, lighting and camera angles are. However, the dramaturgy, editing and story will also be evaluated by the jury, taking the submission type (e.g. architecture, art, advertising/commercials) into consideration.
Films are considered Compositings and judged accordingly if they combine multiple layers of video, computer generated animation, drawings and/or images to create an entity. The jury lays stress on various technical criteria (e.g. quality of masking, colour correction/colour grading, usage of digital effects et cetera), taking into account the category the respective work has been submitted to.
