Open Call for Submission: 2020 CM X Reality, South Korea

The 5th NCM OPEN CALL is collaborating with SK Telecom.

<NCM OPEN CALL> is an open contest that encompasses every innovative and challenging interpretation of virtual and augmented reality.

In this year, with the participation of SK Telecom, we aim to provide more diverse opportunities to promising developers and artists.

‘V REALITY’ includes various meanings.

‘V’ means virtual, number 5 etc. and at the same time, it reminds us an inverted penrose triangle. The Penrose triangle is a virtual image that exists only in two dimensions, and it means the overlap of virtual and reality that is continuously connected and mixed. It encompasses all sorts of innovative and challenging interpretations of the new media called virtual reality, extending the boundaries of reality and crossing the realm of imagination into reality.

Any content that deals with VR, AR, and MR can apply to anyone regardless of nationality, age, gender, or history, without limitation of platform, genre, or subject. Priority is given to ideas and planning that can expand the boundaries of thinking and emotion rather than sophisticated technology.
