LOROS 'VR for Good' competition winners

Our I Experience VR competition, which received 100 entries, attracted a wide variety of immersive 360 films, all designed to provide LOROS Hospice patients with a short therapeutic respite from their current reality.

It was a tricky task but we’ve managed to whittle it down to six worthy winners. Our thanks go to all the filmmakers who entered and our huge congratulations go to the winners. We are looking forward to sharing the films in our now expanded library with both our patients and partners and look forward to seeing their reactions as they immerse themselves in the many varied experiences that we now have to offer.

LOROS CEO John Knight said: “We’ve been really bowled over by the quality of entries to our competition – we’ve seen everything from cross country skiing to tropical beaches. “The overwhelming number of films received also indicates that our competition has really tapped into something here – skillful filmmakers who want to use their talent to benefit others. It’s a huge positive for all our patients and their families and we’re really pleased with the outcome.”
