2020 Digital Storytelling Contest, Interactive, Outstanding Immersive Experience

Battleground PolyU


DJ Clark/China Daily

Tensions during the Hong Kong protests reached a peak in November 2019 after a protester was shot by a traffic policeman. Students occupied university campuses across the city and blocked key highways. After a fierce battle at the Chinese University, attention turned to the blockade at Hong Kong Polytechnic University (PolyU) where students had closed off the Cross-Harbour Tunnel leading to it. Battleground PolyU is a 360 degree experience that immerses the viewer in a defining moment in the history of democracy.
