The annual celebration of XR Fashion, Culture and Art reveals the 26 finalists for the NEWVIEW AWARDS 2021.
Tokyo, Japan December 14th, 2021 – The NEWVIEW AWARDS, now in its fourth year, presented the theme of “Post-Reality & No-Normality” for 2021, set by Naohiro Ukawa, the president of the jury. 152 entries from 15 countries (AR: 43, VR: 97, MR/XR: 12) were received during the application period 10th August to 1st November 1, 2021. 26 works (AR: 3 works, VR: 20 works, XR (AR and VR combined: 3 works)) were selected as finalists after screening by the committee.
For the first time ever, the number of entries from overseas exceeded the number of entries 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 consisting of nine judges from across the globe, and the award ceremony will be held during NEWVIEW FEST 2021, NEWVIEW’s first multi-disciplinary event to be held in real and virtual environments from 21st-30th January, 2022.
