You've waited patiently, now enjoy the winning images (all 44!) from the Terragen VR Challenge in full 8k glory!

For now we are using Facebook while we do further research into the best options to host these on our website:

Some killer renders on display. I for one would've not wanted to judge that one. Congratulations to all who entered!

Yes, it's an amazing gallery (and I'm ashamed of a few silly mistakes too). Hope to get the originals soon....

You can watch them without 'having' facebook, luckily. I'm not a big fan of FB either  ;)

We really wanted to avoid having to use FB as well, that's part of why it took so long I'm sad to say. But ultimately FB seems to have the most widely compatible platform for 360 image viewing at the moment. We will still look at other options and hope to find something better. We will be sending the full resolution original renders to each of the winners. If it seems like a widely-requested thing we can also consider posting just the original images somewhere in case someone wants to try using a stand-alone viewer, but we can't provide any support for specific viewers/configurations, etc. of course.

IMO they actually viewed fairly nicely on Facebook, viewing them in my headset would of course be the real deal. That said in the future if a downloadable Full res version in any format become available that would be nice. Again congratulations to all who entered.

I have internet only on my cellphone and to view a 360 image on a small screen is not very useful. But I have a 360 viewer program on my PC that is connected to a big TV and thus I could view the images there. Can we just upload the pictures so they are downloadable for offline view?

8k + VR! What an amazing collection of images, I'm glad Planetside took the time to do these right. While I no longer participate in FB, I do appreciate that these images can viewed at this level of quality. Every one of these represents so much work and creativity, and each deserves to be, and is indeed, a 'Winner'. I'm really looking forward to see these in a quality VR headset.

Sounds like there is a pretty good interest in downloadable versions, so we'll work on that. Again we won't be able to provide support for specific methods of viewing them offline/in a headset/etc. but we can provide the files, which will be tagged for equirectangular viewing.
