Does Audience Awards support 360 video?

Yes! We are one of the first video platforms to offer a 360 video experience. This feature is currently limited to our branded contests.

What is 360 Video?

Interactive 360 degree video media technology is an immersive change to the way a person views video production.

360 video is created with a camera system that simultaneously records all 360 degrees of a scene. Viewers can interactively pan and rotate the 360 video's perspective to immerse themselves and watch it from different angles.
