Toon Boom and AFCA launch the Animation Celebration

This week, Toon Boom Animation Inc. and the French Animation Association (AFCA) announced the launch of Animation ...

Celebration, an animation contest for the Web, open to creative minds worldwide. The contest is open until September 20, 2006 and is calling for animated shorts that are two minutes or less based on the theme, "An unusual encounter."

A committee comprising AFCA and Toon Boom's representatives will select the movies and decide the finalists. A minimum of five movies and a maximum of 10 movies will be chosen and submitted to a public vote. The three movies that obtain the highest vote will be showcased online for a year on Toon Boom's Website (a link will also be available from the AFCA Website). Movies will also be screened in Paris and Montreal during the evening celebrating the International Animation Celebration Day on October 28, 2006. The three winners will also receive a copy of Toon Boom Solo (www.toonboom.com/products/solo).
