The 4th International VR Awards became the first of its kind to evolve into a fully immersive awards show. We had one clear goal in mind: to lead the way for future virtual events and overcome modern hardships through VR.

Awards Ceremony

Lockdown measures imposed in 2020 allowed the VR Awards to realise a long-standing ambition, a fully virtual event. In partnership with VRChat, we were able to build an immersive experience, taking attendees on an unforgettable journey and presenting a ground-breaking and pioneering advert.

Acting as an official VR awards countdown, the pre-stream panel consisted of an esteemed group of specialists discussing our incredible finalists, the future of VR and what’s in store for the event.
