Each year, the WVRF honours a country at its Annual Summit and gives it a special place during the whole event. After China in 2017, our choice fell on Canada as a country of honour 2018.

WVRF17 WINNER :
For the Imperial Crown Prize, the jury have chosen to honor a work that pushes VR storytelling through it’s fresh approach and clever use of room scale VR technology to elegantly and viscerally communicate a pervasive sense of confinement. This work demonstrates the potential of VR to stimulate discourse that is at once political and personally vulnerable, by creating strong connections to character, and developing a palpable sense of closeness to his plight.
