We are developing a VR game for HTC Vive and Oculus Rift. Are VR games allowed in this contest?
You can probably submit it, but the rules indicate that the games will be run on Intel HD Graphics 520, so no dedicated GPU. Your VR game most likely won't be able to run at all.
I'm afraid (name withheld) is correct.
You can definitely put a VR game forward (and we will definitely try them) but the target platform for judging is an Intel Graphics machine. That doesn't mean you're definitely not able to win, but it does mean you'll not get points for running well on iGFX.
