More About the Contest

Are you working on content for VR, AR, MR and everything else in between? This is your category. The judges are looking to find the best technical and creative artists creating content specifically for use with headsets. This includes games, apps, and all immersive experiences.

Important Notes

  • Combine all your best work into one single entry. Multiple entries with individual projects will not be reviewed.
  • The judges are looking for the artists that can demonstrate the best skills in immersive media. This could be a modeller, it could be a developer.
  • Some of the best previous entries have included videos of people playing their games and using their assets. It’s a great way to show how entertaining you have made your experience.
  • This category is a good mix of creativity and technical ability. Our judges will be considering both equally and looking for that artist that is truly pushing the boundaries in this field.

At the age of 12 I got in contact with 3DsMax and started to play around with it on my own. I was fascinated by the idea that I could build anything I wanted in the computer. Back then I thought I was goingt to be an architect. But with the time I was more and more fascinated with Animation, storytelling and computergenerated images. After college I started to study information technology but quickly switched to study Animation at the Filmakademie Baden-Württemberg.

I've been an artist since I could hold a pencil and a programmer since elementary school. I made many small games over the years but never realized game development was a viable career option until late high school. Once I started learning the professional pipeline, I was hooked. There's no other field that so perfectly encompasses everything I'm passionate about in my life, and I'm excited to take my first steps into the industry.

Games have always been a great passion of mine, I attended a graphic design school in Italy, I knew I wanted to continue my studies and go to a University, so I decided to try and combine my passion of Video Games and Design.

My hobby is drawing ever since I was small. From my hobby it became an interest of mine to commit my life to. From there on I want to work somewhere that I like and proud of.
