The annual Stuttgart Festival of Animated Film (April 23-28) is sponsoring a competition focusing on fashion this year. According to fest organizers, this new fashion award will not only focus on innovative filmmakers and creative new talents, it also opens up new creative opportunities for young media designers and students of fashion schools to show their ideas to a wider audience and by marrying design, creation and animation. The deadline to submit animated shorts focusing on fashion is March 1, 2013.
The ITFS also continues to encourage the collaboration between fashion schools and animation classes to develop new exciting ideas and to develop new animated films. The animated projects will be presented on the web on the websites and social media platforms of Breuninger and the Stuttgart Festival of Animated Film. The three best submissions will be judged by an international jury of animation experts and fashion designers and will each receive 1,000 euros. The winner is awarded 2,000 euros and will have the unique opportunity to produce a commercial trailer for Breuninger.
