Want to vote? Then make sure to check out the experiences you think might be worth winning and then head to this page to cast your decision. Voting closes at 12pm UK time on Saturday, October 17th.
Winners will be announced alongside the wider festival’s categories (including Best Film, Best Documentary and Best Short Film) on YouTube at 7pm on Sunday, October 18th. You can join the ceremony live for no extra cost.
So, what to vote for? Well this year’s show is full of fascinating projects, like the AI-driven Agence or VR documentary, Eldfell. It’s a great selection of content that highlights what VR is doing for culture beyond gaming. You can watch all of this year’s entries free of charge over on Viveport, and also access a selection of the 360 degree entries on Oculus Go and Quest via the Oculus TV app.
