Started in January 2018 as an experimental project/community that pioneers new creative expressions and experience designs in 3D space. In addition to working with artists of various genres to create experimental works and presenting new forms of expression to society, we have developed the “NEWVIEW AWARDS” and the “NEWVIEW SCHOOL” art school where students learn XR as a comprehensive art, discovering and developing the next generation of creators. We nurture, exchange, and disseminate information.
Call for entries for NEWVIEW AWARDS 2022
The NEWVIEW AWARDS will be held for the first time in 2018, and will pursue new expressions and culture/lifestyles in the near future, where all artists and creators will have 3D space expression. The purpose is to discover and disseminate next-generation artists and creators who will lead the way. Over the past four years, there have been a total of 774 entries from 17 countries around the world, contributing to the production of talents who are currently active in the XR scene.
The theme for this year’s 5th anniversary is “Create a Melting Reality”. We are looking for expressions and experiences that physically and sensuously blend the real and the virtual, as well as works that can update existing culture.
In the field of TOKYO / SHIBUYA, where a wide variety of cultures from all over the world gather from all over the world, we will support the award-winning artists to practice next-generation XR expression. In the near future, we will set up an experiment to make the world’s major cities into a real metaverse with the hands of artists. ▶ WEB: https://newview.design/awards/
