The VR Hackathon will be held on 10 to 11 March 2017 and is designed to seek out the best Backend, Unity and developer talent in Hyderabad.

Participants at the VR Hackathon will learn more about the creative work done by Digital Domain India, and winners will take away INR 50,000 cash prize plus attractive goodies, and may also land a VR position at Digital Domain Hyderabad facility.
