Animex Awards 2016 - Animex International Festival of Animation and Computer Games

Animex Awards 2016 - Call for Entries!

Animex Awards once again invites you to enter work into this years' event.

The submission deadline is 19th October 2015.

Animex Awards is an international competition for student animations, which is part of the 'Animex International Festival of Animation and Computer Games' held in February 2016, the largest festival dedicated to animation and computer games in the UK.

From visual effects to stop-motion to animation for computer games, from drawing to CGI, Animex Awards aims to celebrate and reward the talent and achievements of students worldwide. In 2015 we received over 700 entries from more than 60 countries and selected 143 short student animations, which screened in eleven programmes during the festival.

As well as some new categories for the international student competition, for 2016 Animex Awards is also launching a professional category ‘Best First Animation’. This new category aims to recognise emerging new talent and animations, open to any animation director who has just completed their first film as a professional production.

Judging panels from previous awards have included representatives from LAIKA, ToonBoom Animation, Beryl Productions International, Atomhawk Design, Pixar, ILM, Disney, Aardman Animation, Sony Image Works, DreamWorks and Electronic Arts, to name a few.
