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 VR, MR and AR. How interactive fun conquers another dimension.
The VR NOW Awards are the first European awards dedicated to experiences 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. This year, the VR NOW Awards will be presented at the MediaTech Hub Conference on November 19th, 2019 in Potsdam, Germany.

XR Learning experiences and XR visualizations are two major fields for enterprise and industry applications. This is why we honor most advanced training tools as well as graphically and technologically most advanced visualizations.
VR NOW GRAND PRIZE
You’re simply the best, better than all the rest. The VR NOW Grand Prize is for ambitious and daring experiences, the extraordinarily beautiful, the tech wonders, the most empathetic and moving. Better than anyone, anyone I ever met.
Cinematic VR experiences and VR games allow us to discover fantastic realms which immerse us fully, give us new perspectives on storytelling and make us jump and run for real. Such infinite possibilities have to be exploited, and excellence in these must be rewarded – with the the Cinematic VR Award and the Interactive VR Experience Award.
All submitted projects will be reviewed in two rounds by independent juries composed of renowned authors, founders, curators, journalists, investors and other representatives of the XR, technology and media industries.
The VR NOW Industry Awards recognise the most advanced training tools as well as graphically and technologically outstanding visualizations.
The new high tech workbench, the complicated winding mechanism, the expensive high-maintenance thing on the other end of the world – so many people, so much to learn, so little time and so much money to save. Well designed and easy to handle XR training experiences help enterprises all over the world. The rewards: more time, energy, money, and the VR NOW Award.

Being in the story with your whole body. Crying because it’s so sad, so beautiful, or so true. Realizing why XR experiences are called “experiences”. Cinematographers have found a new playing field, which they master better and better. The awe and wonder of next generation storytelling is worth an award.
INTERACTIVE VR EXPERIENCE
Grown up in a world of video games, interactive experiences and VR games are the logical next step for a generation that needs agency, not latency. Surrounded by friends and enemies, caught in the action, we get physical in a virtual world. XR games sound like fun, don’t they? So why not give them an award?
Nominees will receive 2 free MediaTech Hub Conference tickets and access to the award show.
Each of the nominees will also receive the possibility to show their project during the event and a mention in the pre-event press release.
Each of the award winners will receive a famous VR-Winkebär trophy, a 1-year VRBB-association membership and a mention in the post-event press release, in addition to the honor that goes with winning a VR NOW Award.
