VR content award for fashion, culture, and the arts NEWVIEW AWARDS 2018

PARCO, in collaboration with Psychic VR Lab and Loftwork, organized a project called “NEWVIEW AWARDS 2018”.

This is a VR content award in the fashion / culture / art field. Looking to the future, the goal is to discover the next generation of creators who can drive new expression and culture / lifestyle of VR, and to give them a chance to take the next step.

 

We received 219 entries from seven countries, with 19 entries selected in the first screening by the secretariat.
These were submitted for a second, final judgement by all of the judges together giving them rigorous and fair consideration, with nine being selected for awards. The Gold prize (Grand Prix) was awarded to virtual YouTuber Emoco’s personal VR exhibition, “EMOCO’S FIRST PRIVATE EXHIBITION.”

The Good Design Award presentation ceremony

The AKIRA ART WALL, which used the temporary barrier around the reconstruction site for Shibuya PARCO, selected best 100 of the Good Design Award 2018.


It is a collaboration between prominent Japanese manga creator and film director Katsuhiro Otomo’s renowned work, “AKIRA,” and collage artist Kosuke Kawamura.
PARCO installed the art production on the temporary barrier in October 2017, with the intention of creating excitement around the Via PARCO (Park Street) and Spain Hill areas during the construction period.
It received the award for its affinity with the Shibuya district, which is undergoing redevelopment, and for having attracted many visitors from in and outside Japan as a point of interest.
In February 2019, it will be changed to Art Wall Project No. 3, the largest project of its kind ever, communicating to the world that Shibuya is a flashpoint for art and culture.

Full of tasteful illustrations by the author, each essay is a challenging pearl of wisdom.
