ASIFA, Toon Boom Launch Toon Contest

ASIFA (International Animated Film Association) and Toon Boom Animation Inc. today announced the launch of the International Animation Contest, a web competition with a global warming theme. Animators worldwide can submit environmentally-minded films of two minutes or less through Sept. 24.

Films will be evaluated by a committee composed of ASIFA representatives, who will select ten entries to participate in a public voting process. The top three movies will then be showcased online for a year on Toon Boom’s website, with links also visible on the sites for the various ASIFA chapters. Movies will also be screened in different cities during the evening of October 28th, International Animation Celebration Day. In addition to the exposure, the three winners will receive a copy of Toon Boom Solo.
