Nexon Computer Museum (NCM) is accepting submissions for its 2020 Open Call, themed “V Reality“, to supports innovative and challenging interpretations of virtual and augmented reality.
Any person or group that creates XR contents, such as VR, AR or MR is eligible to enter. There is no limitation on platform, genre or theme, so every field, such as game, video, media art which contain VR, AR, MR contents is acceptable.
A total of 22 million KRW will be awarded in 2020, through five distinctive awards.
The grand award for the most amazing and innovative virtual world will be awarded with a prize of 10 million KRW, 5 million KRW to the SK Telecom Special Award and 1st prize team and 1 million KRW to the each two 2nd prize teams. In addition, this year, Oculus Go will be awarded to all teams that have passed the first round.
‘V’ means virtual, number 5 etc. and at the same time, it reminds us an inverted penrose triangle. The Penrose triangle is a virtual image that exists only in two dimensions, and it means the overlap of virtual and reality that is continuously connected and mixed. It encompasses all sorts of innovative and challenging interpretations of the new media called virtual reality, extending the boundaries of reality and crossing the realm of imagination into reality.
Any content that deals with VR, AR, and MR can be submitted. Priority is given to ideas and planning that can expand the boundaries of thinking and emotion rather than sophisticated technology.
NCM OPEN CALL is an annual contest held by Nexon Computer Museum to support new challenges of potential creators. This year’s contest is hosted in collaboration with SK Telecom.
