Get a Chance to Share Your Cutting-Edge AR and VR Innovations with the World at GTC

by Victoria Rege

Have a great idea for augmented or virtual reality? Here’s your chance to share it with the world — and even win $30,000 in cash and prizes — at an upcoming VR contest.

VR Content Showcase

The VR Content Showcase is an incredible opportunity for 10 startups, universities or individuals to gain global recognition for innovation in augmented or virtual reality. The event will take place at our GPU Technology Conference, running May 8-11, which draws thousands developers, researchers and innovators to Silicon Valley each year.

During the VR contest, 10 selected entrants will pitch their ideas on stage for five minutes to a panel of judges, followed by three minutes of Q&A. They’ll also receive free booth space in our exhibit hall to demo their technology.

The winner will get $30,000 in cash and prizes.

Last year took home first prize.

“Winning the VR Showcase at GTC was an extra boost forward for in many ways!” said Daniel Sproll, CXO, “We received valuable feedback from people at the heart of the industry and made many important contacts. It also accelerated many aspects of our business, from fundraising to our photogrammetry processing, thanks to the powerful NVIDIA Quadro GPUs that were part of the prize. If you are looking for a fast-track to get your VR company in front of the right people inside the industry, the GTC VR Showcase is the way to go!”
