About the contest
Do you prefer your video conferences inside a Star Trek control room? On a beach in Hawaii? Floating in psychedelic fractals? Show off your creativity and talent for Zoom virtual backgrounds and submit to win the VBA. A panelist of remote expert judges will assess nominations based on originality, clarity, and composition. No Zoom defaults, obviously.
