Vienna 2017: IVRPA Street View Challenge

The International Virtual Reality Photography Association Conference

The IVRPA Vienna Street View Challenge is a friendly panorama photography competition between IVRPA members attending the annual conference.

Members of IVRPA are invited to scout Vienna to find the most scenic sites of this amazing city, select the best time of the day and create stunning panoramas. Panoramas are then submitted before the deadline. An independent panel of judges will select the winning entries and those winners will take home 2500€ in cash and prizes!

Join us this year in Vienna and together let's show the world how creative and talented IVRPA photographers are!
