There is no limitation in platform, genre, or theme if it is an XR content, and anyone can apply regardless of their nationality, age, gender, or field experience. If there are a demonstration video and a playable build file that explicitly shows the core intent of the work, projects still under development are also received. Applications will be received from July 1st until August 31st, and the winners will be announced on October 25th.
The total amount of prize money is KRW 13 million. The winner for the most innovative content will receive KRW 5 million, while the winners for the best and the excellence in the categories of VR and AR will receive KRW 3 million and KRW 1 million respectively.
The winning team will be given the opportunity to become next year’s NCM Accelerator through further screening.
