Following the debut of OZO, its new virtual reality camera, earlier this week, Nokia has partnered up with Tongal, the creative content platform, to launch “Look Around You,” a groundbreaking new virtual reality filmmaking competition.
Nokia and Tongal are accepting 500-character concept submissions for an original virtual reality film. The top two concepts from the pool of submissions will be rewarded $1,000 each and will advance to the second round, which begins August 26. For the second round, Nokia and Tongal will invite filmmakers to submit production proposals and compete for the chance to not only win the opportunity to shoot their proposal, but also receive $20,000 in funding and access to an OZO camera for the shoot. The grand prize winner will receive their own OZO camera.
