4. LICHTER VR Storytelling Award

Call for entries for VR films

In 2020 the VR Storytelling Award is going into a new round! After three very successful editions from 2017 to 2019, we’re organizing for the fourth time an international competition with the presentation of the finalist’s works from 21th to the 26th of April 2020 in Frankfurt am Main, Germany.

Starting now, the call for entries is open and will run until January 31th 2020.

Our main interest lies in narrative and documentary VR content, on new forms of narration in the virtual world. Thus, the competition is aimed at all those who are approaching VR with regard to the content. Fictional and non-fictional VR experiences either rendered or filmed in real-time can be submitted as long as they are compatible with mobile HMDs (Gear VR or similar devices).

An independent jury will determine the five finalists from all the entries. The works will be presented to the audience in public screenings during the festival and the winner will be honored and awarded with a cash prize.


After the submission, you will receive a confirmation by eMail in the next days including your submission number. Please answer to this with an eMail containing a download link of your film and a signed version of our regulations (you cand find them here) form. Please send us 2D/3D 360 degrees videofiles that are playable on a mobile HMD. Alternatively, please print the mail, put it in an envelope with the viewing copy on DVD (or BluRay/USB-Stick) and a signed copy of the regulations and submit it to us by mail to the address stated below.
