While the VR community still doesn’t have a singular source of awards that commands attention from the entire industry just yet, there are a few that have been around for quite some time, such as the appropriately titled VR Awards. You can see a full list of all nominees here.
The 2018 edition of The VR Awards, which is put on by VR Bound, is set to start at 1:30PM PT today, October 16th, 2018. You can watch the show live as it happens via the embedded YouTube livestream link down below or at this link.
Edit: The VR Awards team re-uploaded the ceremony without the audio issues:
Alternatively, you can attend the show in VR and view it live from inside of AltspaceVR. All you have to do is click “Interested” at this link using your Altspace account. Make sure you have an account and have already signed into Altspace before using the app.
You don’t actually have to use it in VR if you don’t want to — you could just attend on your PC like you’re playing a non-VR game if you’d prefer. According to the instructions from VR Bound and The VR Awards:
Windows PC or VR Headset users – Open the app, click the blue circle with a triangle in it to open the menu, then click the ‘Customize Your Avatar’ button to the left hand side of your menu, then click ‘Switch Account’ located below ‘Save Avatar’, then type in your login details. Then click the blue circle with a triangle in it to open the menu, click ‘Events’, then ‘Interested’, then click the blue arrow on the event to enter.
Hopefully you tune in and enjoy the show!
