Advertising Information

Animation Magazine‘s website complements the long history and recognized success of the print version. It adds significant value to the magazine by establishing a community for the animation industry with the convenience and immediacy of the Internet. As we continue to grow our website, we reaffirm Animation Magazine‘s position as “The Animation Authority.”

The Internet already has a profound effect on the world. It is changing commerce, research, entertainment and information gathering—influencing the way people go about their daily business.

To this end we will be adding our archives and our Animation Industry Directory to the website in the next year. We will also be adding a career section to help facilitate both those looking for opportunities and companies offering opportunities via a searchable database. Throughout the next year we will be adding additional pages to the site to accommodate all areas of animation including commercials, feature films, daytime television, primetime television, games and the Internet, just to name a few.

To accomplish these objectives, our website not only pulls elements from the print edition, but provides links and additional information beyond the scope of paper. Animated clips, contests, festivals, software and up-to-the-minute news help to make

“The Animation Authority on the Internet.” There are ample opportunities for advertisers to extend their reach and combine the power of the monthly print version of Animation Magazine with the website to maximize the impact of their advertising message.
