JANUS-Award – The Jena tradition
The FullDome Festival honors outstanding achievements with the Janus-Award. The double-faced Roman god Janus was chosen as our patron saint because he sees front and rear, past and future simultaneously. No one is better equipped to bless the heroes of immersive media, as they are reaching for the stars, and reaching for an award. Check History to see who received a JANUS-Award between 2013 in 2020.
