At NVIDIA’s upcoming GTC 2017 conference on May 8-11, the company plans to award $30,000 in cash and prizes to the winners of the VR Content Showcase which is seeking companies focusing on content other than gaming which is using or plans to use Nvidia GPU technology like GameWorks, DesignWorks or VRWorks. Submissions close on March 15th.

Nvidia’s annual GTC conference will be held May 8-11 this year in San Jose, California. Once again the company is hosting a VR Content Showcase where developers stand to take home $30,000 in cash and prizes. The company is seeking 10 teams to participate in the showcase, all of which will get space on the show floor to exhibit during GTC and will also make a presentation to a panel of judges at the VR Content Showcase for consideration to win the prizes offered.

The company is specifically looking for startups that have raised no more than $5 million in capital, and those who are developing non-gaming applications, including but not limited to “science, technology, education, art and medicine,” according to the GTC 2017 VR Content Showcase submission page. Though it’s called the VR Content Showcase, Nvidia is also leaving the door open for submissions from companies developing AR applications in the same fields.

According to the submission page, “applications must be currently using or have plans to integrate GPU technology such as GameWorks, DesignWorks or VRWorks,” and also “must run using an AR or VR headset attached to a PC or workstation with an NVIDIA GPU.”
