Sketchfab is a platform for sharing 3D objects and scenes.  They recently held a contest with the theme "Light, Camera, Immersion," for recreating famous movie scenes in VR, with separate categories for static scenes and animated scenes.  The top prizes in each category were an Oculus Rift headset, plus $150 of Netflix credit.  All in all, $2,500 of prizes were at stake.

Sketchfab announced the winners today, and they are indeed amazing!  You can view the entries on most modern browsers (even on a phone) with WebVR support.  You can rotate and zoom in using your mouse.  You can also view them in VR with Google Cardboard, Samsung Gear VR, Oculus Rift, or HTC Vive.
