• 33 projects from all over the world nominated for animago AWARDS in eleven categories

  • International VFX experts set to meet at the animago CONFERENCE in Munich


Munich, 1 August 2017: In today’s world, visual effects and digital editing form part of almost every film, advertisement, interactive production, computer game and virtual reality production. Indeed, the work of digital artists is required in a wide variety of industries over and above film, games and advertising. In fact, digital production continues to play an increasingly key role in a number of other industries ranging from architecture and automobile manufacturing to medicine.

At the animago AWARD & CONFERENCE on 7-8 September 2017, VFX experts from all over the world will gather in Munich for two full days focusing on 3D animation, stills, visual effects (VFX), visualizations and design. More than 1,000 participants are expected to attend the events in the Gasteig Cultural Center in Munich.

The highlight of the two days will no doubt be the presentation of the animago AWARDS on Thursday evening (7 September). Chosen in a total of eleven categories from out of almost 1,000 submissions received from 58 countries, the 33 final nominees represent projects created in Canada, USA, China, Taiwan, Ecuador, Costa Rica, Spain, France and Germany. Since the animago competition launched over 20 years ago, our independent jury of experts drawn from the fields of film, development and post-production has viewed and judged over 22,000 works sent in by digital artists from over 80 different nations.

Among the renowned VFX professionals who will speak at this year’s  CONFERENCE are those artists responsible for the post-production and visual effects for films such as “Piper”, “Cloud Atlas”, “Independence Day: Resurgence”, “The Incredibles”, “Finding Nemo”, “Pinocchio”, “Anne Frank” as well as advertising productions by Adidas, Volkswagen and RedBull. The animago is considered one of the industry’s most important international networking platforms.

In addition to that, the Gasteig will also host the animago EXHIBITION, an event open to the public where companies active in the industry will present their products, technologies and services.
