We’re going virtual. Experience the VR Awards like never before.

For Immediate Release – 16th March (International)

The Academy of International Extended Reality, AIXR, are officially announcing that the 4th International VR Awards will be a first of its kind fully immersive awards show. The event will take place on the 27 October 2020, with nominations opening 26 March 2020.

The VR Awards will continue to offer the largest global awards ceremony for VR, this time implementing state of the art technology to deliver unrivaled networking opportunities, never seen before world premiers, and thrilling digitised entertainment. 

The event will feature a live studio panel, complete with pre-programmed livestream content, indistinguishable from a televised physical show.

Last year saw the immersive industries most influential names in attendance, most notably with John Carmack, consulting CTO at Oculus making headlines. ILMxLAB, Sony, & FundamentalVR as well as several companies outside the space, such as Lloyds Banking Group were also in attendance.

From day one of launching the VR Awards, our goal always was to transition to a virtual space, to allow creators, no matter their location, to join via their browser, phone, VR headset and more. Given world climates, we’ve been handed an opportunity to make this a reality, and it was an offer we couldn’t refuse to innovate on. ” – Daniel Colaianni, Chief Executive, AIXR

Nominations for the event will open on the 26 of March. To learn about getting the most out of the nomination process, AIXR is running a series of webinars on 2 April and 23 April 2020 featuring last year’s winners. Those interested can register here
