Finalists Announced for the 11th Annual Auggie Awards at AWE Online
AWE USA 2020
Finalists announced for the 11th Auggie Awards!
For over a decade now, the Auggie Awards have showcased the best of the best in augmented and virtual reality. As the most recognized industry AR/VR awards show (like the "Oscars of XR" according to one Twitter user), making it to the Finalists round is an honor. May 8 marked the end of the public voting period, following hundreds of nominations between December and April 20. Next up is the judging period, during which members of the esteemed AWE Advisory Council will judge the finalists in each category to determine the winners. Council members include industry influencers and pioneers like Helen Papagiannis, Adario Strange, Graham Roberts, Avi Bar-Zeev, Alice Bonasio, and Cathy Hackl.
Among the winners last year were The New York Times (Best Consumer App), Zappar (winner of Best Campaign for the 7-Eleven 'Always On' AR experience), MEOW WOLF (winner of Best Art or Film for The Navigator), RealWear (Best Headworn Device), and Snap (winner of Best Creator & Authoring Tool for Lens Studio 2.0). Additional past winners include HTC, PTC, UNICEF, IKEA, and Lowe's.
