An XR(VR/AR/MR) Content Award in the fields of Fashion / Culture / Art, The NEWVIEW AWARDS 2022, has just been held!
The theme for this year's awards, which will be the 5th anniversary of these awards, is "Create a Melting Reality."
During the application period from August 8, 2022, to October 31, 2022, 155 works (AR: 54 works, VR: 92 works, MR/XR: 9 works) from 14 countries were submitted, and 21 entries (AR: 7, VR: 12, XR: 2) were selected as finalists after screening by the Executive Committee.
This year's entries were characterized by AI-based visual expression and experience design that strongly emphasized physicality, with many of the approaches demonstrating new perceptual experiences in which physical and virtual worlds merge. From here on, nine prize-winning works will be selected by a panel of nine judges from Japan and abroad, aiming to open up new possibilities for existing culture through XR.
The prize winners will be announced at the NEWVIEW AWARDS 2022 CEREMONY to be held as part of the NEWVIEW FEST 2022, a NEWVIEW multi-disciplinary event that will run from Friday, December 23 through Sunday, December 25, 2022.
