According to the judging criteria, 30 points go to interpretation and clarity of theme to the judges/viewers, 30 points go to the structural integrity (if 3D printed and imported into Oculus Home), and 10 points will be awarded for presentation.

The winner of the contest will receive a 3D printed version of their creation from the Oculus Medium team, and will also have their creation featured as a decoration available in Oculus Home. The final deadline for submissions is October 21st, 2018 at 11:59pm PST!
