AWE 2024 Auggie Awards Finalists
AWE USA 2024 Auggie Awards

The finalists for the 2024 Auggie Awards competition have been announced! For our 15th anniversary year, we surpassed all figures from previous years and received a new record number of nominations. Plus, with the addition of four new categories, it truly makes this year our biggest Auggie Awards competition ever!

The Auggie Awards (aka “The Auggies”) have been the most recognized AR & VR industry awards in the world since 2010. Now in their 15th year, the Auggies continue to showcase the best of the best in augmented, virtual and mixed reality.

We are excited to share this year's finalists, but also want to celebrate every single one of the innovative solutions that were submitted. Thanks too goes out to anyone who voted, as it is your votes that help to determine which entries are put in front of AWE’s expert panel of impartial judges. The judges will now assess each entry based on quality, impact, and overall user experience.


Winning an Auggie Award acknowledges an organization's (or individual's) dedication and innovation, and also helps to promotes their XR solutions to a broader audience. The heightened visibility that comes with winning an award, or even just from reaching the final round, can help to spotlight a company's AR/VR product or solution, and capture the attention of industry leaders, as well as potential customers, users and investors.

For those that didn’t make the finals this year, there is still an opportunity to be in with a chance of claiming an Auggie Award, as there are additional categories that are only chosen during the AWE USA event itself. These include a ‘Best in Show’ category, as well as the title of ‘Start-Up to Watch,’ which is awarded to the winner of AWE’s Start-Up Pitch Competition. Finally, there is the ‘AWEsome Award,’ which can be awarded for anything from a spectacular exhibitor booth or Playground experience, to an incredible presentation or talk that blows the judges away whilst at the event. 

Congratulations to all the finalists, and a heartfelt thank you to everyone who submitted nominations this year and to those who voted for their favorite entries. You can view the finalist gallery for the 2024 Auggie Awards competition here.

The amazing thing about the Auggie Awards is that the competition is open to anyone, from the largest players in the spatial computing world, to individual augmented and virtual reality developers and creators. The Auggies provide everyone with a platform to earn some much deserved attention and recognition for their hard work across the XR space over the past year.

As well as being crowned winner of their respective category, winners will also receive their very own Auggie Award trophy, a highly-coveted, one of a kind piece of art created by artist Sigal Arad Inbar.

The winners of the 2024 Auggie Awards will be announced on the Main Stage on June 19th at AWE 2024 in Long Beach, California, where we'll also be honoring the inaugural group of 101 inductees to the AWE XR Hall of Fame. Make sure that you are there to witness the winners receive their awards on stage at what will be the largest XR community gathering of the year.
