Munich, 7 March 2016. Starting right now, creative professionals from all over the world are invited to visit www.animago.com to submit their work in the fields of 3D ANIMATION & STILLS, VISUAL EFFECTS and VISUALISATION for consideration at the animago AWARD 2016. This year’s competition features twelve categories covering all disciplines relating to CGI (Computer Generated Imagery). Participation is free and projects can be sent in until 30 June 2016.

This year’s “Best Young Production” award will once again involve €3,000 in prize money contributed by the animago organisers at DIGITAL PRODUCTION. A special “Anniversary Prize” celebrating the 20th anniversary of the animago AWARD will also be handed out, with the nominees and winners decided by public vote.

The 2016 awards ceremony will take place during the animago AWARD & CONFERENCE (27/28 October 2016) – this year for the first time in Munich’s Gasteig Cultural Centre.

animago project manager Jana Freund: “2016 is going to be a very special year for the animago, especially considering our location change to Munich and the 20th anniversary of the animago AWARD. Over the course of two decades, we received extraordinary digital works from over 80 different nations, including “Pixels” by Patrick Jean, a prize-winning film in 2010 that formed the basis for the 2015 Hollywood film of the same name. We also had the pleasure of enjoying subsequent Oscar-winners, such as “Logorama” by Nicolas Schmerkin and “Mr. Hublot” by Laurent Witz & Alexandre Espigares. Thanks to everyone for their trust and confidence over the years in such a rapidly growing industry”.
