Among so many amazing renders realized in Blender in 2016 and featured as winners of the Render of the Week Awards, it might be disputable to pick just some among them. There were certainly many more that should have been featured again as winners of the Render of the Year Awards 2016. As you read the about the select few winners,  please be mindful that other candidates for this award weren't necessarily a lesser artist than this years final winners. Their works, however, are good reminders of what Blender can do for top notch studios and freelancers.
