There is a lot riding on how you present yourself and your work to the world. Having the right skills, knowledge and hardware, is crucial to that. So, it's not a coincidence that the Rookie Awards 2022 is powered by Major Sponsor, Lenovo. From real-time rendering to editing and designing, Lenovo is listening to the needs of the digital industries, and delivering a machine to power your amazing entries and portfolios.


This year, Lenovo is giving away a ThinkPad P1 Laptop to Rookie of the Year Winner in the Game Development, Virtual Fashion, and Visual Effects categories.

If you are aspiring to take out that category, and get your hands on your own ThinkPad, get inspired by what other 3D artists are doing with this amazing hardware.

Marlon Nuñez, is a 3D character artist from Spain who has worked on projects for studios such as Blur and Electronic Arts for over a decade and is the co-founder of ArtHeroes 3D Academy.

The first thing that I noticed is that it’s extremely light compared to my previous laptop. I tend to travel quite a lot so I get to work remotely, so for me having a light laptop is very important, and this laptop is super light—it’s ultra-light.

Even while on the go, Marlon can run essential applications such as Autodesk Maya and Epic Games Unreal Engine in real-time without compromising performance due to the ThinkPad P1’s liquid metal thermal design for improved cooling. From sculpting characters’ faces to adding pixel perfect shading and textures, the 16-inch, 16:10 aspect ratio display with low-blue light technology and colour calibration also gives users like Marlon more screen real estate to better meet their visualisation needs and bring their creative visions to life.

Beyond helping creatives in the media and entertainment industry work efficiently wherever they are, the new ThinkPad P1 is well-suited for design workflows across industries such as architecture, engineering, automotive and beyond.

Schools like Gnomon, are also using Lenovo workstations to power their students' creativity.

Gnomon strives for quality across the board. We want the best teachers, the best courses and the best hardware. That's where Lenovo comes in with their partnership. Josh Herman CCO
