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. This year, the winners of each category will receive a prize from this year's sponsor Citigen (https://www.citi-gen.com)-a full copy of Citigen-Ultimate (Freelance) version.
