Call for Participation: XR History Award 2022! – VRHAM! festival e.V.

Show us your extended view of history!

Representations of history are powerful means, too often and too easily manipulated. Now, more than ever, is the time to tell fact-based stories about the past in new formats: We are looking for an extraordinary XR project that uses immersive technology to explore history, history education or commemorative culture. Documentaries, stories or art – various approaches showing innovative perspectives are welcome.

The winning project will be rewarded with 5.000 Euro.

For the XR History Award 2022 we accept Virtual, Augmented, Mixed Reality and Immersive Media Experiences dealing with history, history education or cultural commemoration in documentary, narrative or artistic form. The prize winner will be selected by a jury of international experts. The selected work will be publicly displayed during VRHAM! Hamburg 2022 and the eCommemoration Convention, which will take place in early Autumn 2022 in Hamburg. The exhibition format will be mutually agreed upon and is depending on technical and financial feasibility.

Projects that distort history are explicitly excluded.

VRHAM! is the world’s first festival exhibiting VR-artists and their artworks. Only a few years after its foundation, VRHAM! is already established as an important date in the international VR art scene.
