NEWVIEW is a project community which aims to pioneer new creative expression and experience in the 3D world. We held a competition in the field of fashion / culture / art called the ”NEWVIEW AWARDS 2021.“
The theme of this year's awards is POST REALITY AND NO NORMAL. The production and distribution platform is STYLY(https://styly.cc), a VR/AR/MR creative platform that provides a space for artists in all fields of digital expression to exhibit their creative style.
During the application period from August 10, 2021 to November 1, 2021, 152 works (AR: 43 works, VR: 97 works, MR/XR: 12 works) from 15 countries were submitted, and 26 works (AR: 3 works, VR: 20 works, XR (AR and VR together: 3 works)) were selected as finalists after screening by the admins.
For the first time, the number of entries from overseas exceeded the number from Japan, and the finalists were selected for their ambitious approach to exploring the perception of reality, physicality, narrative, and entertainment.
The award-winning works will be selected through a judging panel of nine judges from Japan and overseas, and the award ceremony will be held during NEWVIEW FEST 2021, NEWVIEW's first multi-disciplinary event to be held in both real and virtual environments from January 21 (Friday) to January 30 (Sunday), 2022.
