The VR Hackathon is an opportunity to learn about Virtual Reality and other immersive technologies, to meet new people, and to get hands-on experience with Immersive design and development.
VR and AR are of great interest to many industries such as medicine, manufacturing, marketing, design, construction, and many more. If you have domain expertise in any field where immersive technologies might be useful, we would love to have you attend, as your insight is key in helping us to solve real problems, even if you've never worked with these technologies before.

Step 1 - Rating
Judges begin by rating your projects on a scale of 1-5 according to the several criteria: Completeness, Visual Design, Audio Design, Interaction Design, Technical Achievement, Use of Narrative, and Novelty.
Step 2 - Ranking
Next, ratings are used to rank projects, allowing us to quickly identify which projects stand out within each criterion.
Step 3 - Discussion
Once the top projects are identified, our judges discuss the pros and cons of each one to explore the differences in their opinions.
Step 4 - Decisions
Finally, judges select winners by consensus. Each team can win only one prize. If a team is eligible for multiple prizes, it will receive the best prize. Other teams will then be considered for the remaining prizes.
