Tell your story in WebVR
It’s a WebVR Hackathon but you don’t need to know code to take part.
There will be amazing prizes available for the best Auteurist VR movie, Best WebVR Hack, and Best Overall Project. Follow Axum Graphics on Twitter or Facebook to learn what these prizes will be as soon as they are announced!
As well as these prizes on the day, Mozilla are running the Open Innovation WebVR Challenge. Any WebVR project that uses at least one of the Real Time Design Challenge fantasy assets shown on the competition site will be eligible for entry. These assets will also be available on Auteurist for you to use in your projects. Submissions for the Mozilla Open Innovation WebVR Challenge are open through April 2, 2018, and winners will be announced on April 30th, 2018.
Google Cardboard viewers will be provided to test your WebVR projects on your Android phone. Other shared VR headsets will be available for use during the hackathon.
The Hackathon is at Mozilla HQ in San Francisco. The first day of hacking runs from 11am on Saturday 17th March through to 2am on 18th March. The second day of hacking runs from 11am until 1:00pm on Sunday 18th March. The projects will be presented between 1:30pm and 2:30pm, followed by judging and presentation of the prizes!
