ABOUT VR NOW AWARDS

Virtual Reality, Augmented Reality and Mixed Reality are evolving. Sometimes at a steady pace, sometimes in fast thrusts. We accompany this exciting process since 2016. We have witnessed how plots overwhelm us when storytellers tear down the mediated walls and invite us to come real close. How enterprises can use emerging tech to maintain infrastructure and teach employees. How patients overcome their fears and doctors perform better with the help of XR (VR, MR and AR). How interactive fun conquers another dimension. 

The VR NOW Awards are the first European awards dedicated to experiences in XR, i.e. in Virtual Reality, Augmented Reality, Mixed Reality and Cinematic VR. An independent expert jury honors great achievements in four categories. The Grand Prize celebrates the best project of the year, selected from all nominees in the other categories.

We skipped 2020 but are back in 2021 with a bang. In a series of online events we will celebrate the best of XR together with you, the creators, fans and partners of this exciting industry we all <3

BEST VR TECHNOLOGY

You can also think of this as XR innovation award. Technology here is also including smart combinations of existing tech-packages. We love new hardware the same as we love new software. Just make sure the project description focuses on the technological creativity of your submission.   

BEST INDUSTRY VR

Your XR experience is designed for the non-endemic industries mainly? You got the best training simulation? The best maintenance app? The best risk or ressource management a XR experience can offer? This category is for you! Be brave, be creative, anything that has a higher pragmatic meaning goes.
