First IVRPA Québec City Street View Challenge hosted by Google Street View
The event also marks the first time Google Street View has hosted a photography competition. Enrolled photographers will be invited to celebrate the best that Québec has to offer.

Conference sessions will include:
VR at Google — Jeremy Doig, Engineering VP, Virtual Reality at Google
Over the next few years, Virtual Reality technology will come to consumers in multiple forms - in imaging products, technology platforms and everyday consumption experiences. In this talk, Jeremy will outline Google’s work in this exciting field and the opportunities for creators and visual storytellers to reach the world with transformative experiences.
Chornobyl360: Creating a VR Documentary — Kirill Pokutnyy, cofounder WIT, Kyiv, Ukraine
Chornobyl360 is a new immersive VR documentary about the famous meltdown and city.
Advancements in Street View — Charles Armstrong, Product Manager, Google Street View
360 photography is evolving rapidly. DSLR–based panoramic photography remains the top–quality production workflow, but new cameras and services from Google are pioneering a future designed for mainstream adoption. In this talk Charles will share some of Google’s progress as it gears up to support 360 photography at scale.
