The Virtual Photography Awards Return for 2021

It's December already and not only does that mean that the end of the year rapidly approaching, but that is nearly time for The VP Awards. That's right, the 2nd annual virtual photography awards are coming soon to celebrate the best things about the last 12 months in photo mode.

Launching on Dec 14th, this year's awards will again bring together players, photographers and studio creatives from all over the world with both game industry and public entry award categories that recognise the best of consumer photo modes and the outstanding individual images captured by virtual photographers through this digital art form.

What Next?

All of the information you need will follow on the awards landing page when they fully launch on the 14th and I can't wait to share more about what is in store this year. If the 2020 awards were all about establishing an exciting new event for the world of virtual photography, the 2021 has been about growing that with some thrilling new partnerships and outstanding new 3D visuals produced by the extremely talented Chris Taljaard.

More on all of that to come, so stay tuned to TheFourthFocus as we get closer to launch, check out all of the winners from last year, and join the conversation on Twitter to let me know which games and studios you would most like nominated in the game industry award categories.
