VR Location-Based Entertainment of the Year celebrates exceptional experiences that transport visitors to new realms of immersion, setting the bar for theme parks, cinemas, attractions, museums, and beyond. Nominated projects must demonstrate the effective use of cutting-edge technology to deliver user control, user movement, and innovative interactivity, with a particular focus on the user experience.

Judges will be assessing the nominees' capacity to captivate visitors through unique and enjoyable user experiences while prioritizing accessibility and originality. Nominees should showcase how they have researched, designed, and executed an exceptional location-based experience.

The award will also emphasize the originality of each experience and how it has been optimized to meet the demands of location-based environments.

Due to the nature of VR Location-Based Entertainment (LBE) projects, it may be challenging for all judges to experience each submission in person, as they are typically only available in specific physical locations.

As a result, judges may need to rely on alternative methods of evaluating these projects, such as video demonstrations, user feedback, and expert reviews, to fully understand their impact and effectiveness.
