What would be the purpose of setting up an CG award? Some do it to promote the organizers or sponsors' needs: promoting their products to enhance their monetary gains. As such, it's inevitable that quite often--if not at all--the best gets put aside to make room for another that helps to meet theirs need. Sometimes the organizers have done it so blatantly that they have destroyed their year-long reputation and never recovered.

What is the goal of BlenderNews.org's Render of the Year Awards, then? Not for monetary gains. Blender is free anyway and the organizer(s) for this awards doesn't rely on any sponsorship even from the Blender Foundation.

Render of the Year Awards--along with its weekly Render of the Week Awards--seek to help commissioners to identify competent artists or studios to realize their visions. It's time consuming to review all the portfolios of thousands of artists and even verify their claim of competence. 

Congrats to all winners and thank you all--winners and candidates--for your amazing and stunning works done in 2021!

7. Best Character Art (Creature):


Dilophosaurus wetherilli
