The judging process for the Ghost City Rendering Challenge is designed to reflect various architectural drawings. Our judges will be asked to select winning entries based on their, aesthetics, sensitivity, and communicative quality as well as a powerful drawing that will have an extraordinary impact on social media. Entries that stand out in the following categories have a great chance to be selected as the Winner.

The Jury will evaluate renderings based on the following criteria:


Aesthetic rendering is more than just beauty. They convey the essence of the architecture they describe, the atmosphere or emotional strength of a space, and the sense of a place that is strong and specific. Empty or gripping city spaces, unoccupied markets or even city parks that were full of people. A well-considered rendering is able to describe a particular architectural language that speaks to a unique and specific design philosophy. Aesthetics may also involve the depiction of an otherwise chaotic architectural form or even tend to be "ugly" to paint an interesting picture of a particular environment, with disorder and chaos that can present the new aesthetic or represent the New Normal.


The most important architectural rendering quality is its ability to express the design intentions behind the architectural proposal. So this entails the quality of lighting, colour selection, and location settings around it. Furthermore, a good rendering can also tell the story of a building or several buildings, details and materials of the building and the people around it to show the life and atmosphere in one snapshot. Images can express a lot of different things and tend to focus on one or more of the following aspects: Technical details, spatial layout planning, materials, connections between architectural elements, relationships with context, transitions between spaces, and others.
