The 2011 Cartoon Tribute Winner were RTE for Broadcaster of the Year; Paris-based AWOL (led by the amazing Julie Fox) for Distributor of the Year; and Dublin’s Monster Animation & Design for Producer of the Year.

  • France had the highest number of projects—22 over all, followed by U.K. with 14, Spain with 11 and Poland with five.
  • The average budget for these projects is estimated to be about 7,670 euros ($10580) per minute.
  • About 35% of these projects were conceived for other media platforms.
