this just in from

"Babelgum have announced the first tri-platform (online, mobile and offline) competition for animation and anime - the Babelgum Animatron Film Festival. Entries will be eligible for an Audience Award voted on by the public as well as cash prizes (ranging from 500USD to 5000USD) from a select jury of leaders in the animation, film, and television world.

The Jury includes RotoScope pioneer Tommy Pallotta (Snack and Drink, Waking Life, A Scanner Darkly), industry leader and visual-effects producer Charlotte Bavasso (Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events), and animators Pete Bishop (Bromwell High, Captain Star) and Isaac Littlejohn Eddy (Anatomy of a Dog Show, Capturing King), and Jeffrey Scher (Paper View, Lost and Found, Tulips), with others to be announced soon.

There are five categories; Humor, Fantasy, Real Life, Anime and Minis (Under 60 seconds.)

Eligible films will incorporate any known animation technique, including CGI, stop-motion, Flash, hand-drawn/cel, live-action mixed, claymation, paper-cut, Pixilation, RotoScope, 3D, machinima, and all others. There are no restrictions on production year or whether the film has been previously distributed or entered into any online and/or offline film festival.
Do you have any work that fits in these categories? Have you got some animations sitting on your hard-drive? Has your animation finished the festival circuit? If you answered yes to any of these questions then get em' up! It would be awesome to see Shooters winning these awards and having their work screened together. Animators - this is a call to action!
