VR Awards 2017
Highlights, media and extras from 2017
The VR Awards 2017 began the night in true black tie fashion. As over 300 international delegates arrived for the evening’s events, guests were greeted with a complimentary glass of champagne and given the opportunity to network before the official opening speeches.
Both Daniel Colaianni from AIXR and James Knight from AMD Studios took to the stage, providing a warm welcome to delegates and reflecting on just how far the industry has come in such a small amount of time.

In collaboration with Google and Anna Zhilyaeva, a talented artist from Paris, the VR Awards team orchestrated a truly creative and innovative art piece utilising Google Tilt Brush.
To tie the art piece together, the musical talent of London-based ZHL strings choreographed a condensed 15 minute performance of Vivaldi’s Four Seasons.
Before the night came to the close, VIP ticket holders took to the dance with a Live DJ, a free unlimited bar and the opportunity to experience new depths of bass from Subpac.
2017 saw 12 award-worthy winners take to the stage to accept their trophies and give short but inspirational acceptance speeches. Most notably, both Google & Oculus went home with not one, but two awards.
