Korean developer and publisher Nexon has opened up submissions for a VR exhibit entitled "VR, why just sit watching?" to developers around the globe.
The company will award four first-place prizes and two second-place prizes to teams who submit games across a variety of pre-determined but loose themes; first place prizes come with an award of 1 million Korean won (approximately $848) and second-place prizes come with awards of 500,000 Korean won (approximately $424.)
Each winning game will be exhibited for two weeks in the Nexon Computer Museum, during which period the first-place developers will also be housed and participate in development workshops at Nexon's facility in Jeju, South Korea.
Games developed for any VR platform are welcome; rights to the games are retained by their developers.

- 桑田碧海 (Sang-Jeon-Byeok-Hae) Prize, for a "VR project successively expressing a surprising conversion of the world"
