ORIGIN OF THE CONTEST

 

This contest was originally born from the idea to use the new VR/AR technology to promote the UN's sustainable development goals.

 

The idea evolved and Sweden VR contacted Massive Entertainment, which found the idea interesting as well as a good cause. Months of discussions and practical steps lead to the final contest concept. 

 

The contest will harness the power of VR/AR to captivate, educative and showcase the beauty of our planet.  Furthermore, it aims to stimulate, discover and highlight creative VR/AR talents worldwide, while bringing together high-tech and sustainability.

 

The contest is now also sponsored by SIDA and the HTC Vive Lab initiative and supported by: WWF, Naturskyddsföreningen, New Seed and VR Lab at Lund University.
