Hanrahan was honored along with Cornell University's Doug L. James, for their individual contributions to the field of computer graphics. He received the award at Carnegie Mellon University, a presenting sponsor along with the Tokyo University of Technology (TUT), on September 26. The prizes are endowed by Japanese entrepreneur and education advocate Koh Katayanagi, who founded TUT and several technical institutions in Japan.

"On behalf of everyone at Tableau, I'm thrilled for Pat and congratulate him on this prestigious and important award in computer science," said Chris Stolte, Chief Development Officer and co-founder of Tableau Software. "Pat's contributions have not only helped drive Tableau – but they've also shaped the world of computer graphics as we know them today. He's incredibly deserving of this prize."

Hanrahan was an early employee at Pixar Animation Studios and was the chief architect of the RenderMan Interface – a protocol that allows modeling programs to describe scenes to high quality rendering programs. Before joining Stanford he was a faculty member at Princeton. He has received two Academy Awards for Science and Technology, the Spirit of America Creativity Award, the SIGGRAPH Computer Graphics Achievement Award, the SIGGRAPH Stephen A. Coons Award, and the IEEE Visualization Career Award.
