And the winner is...

Bugging the Bug of Velislav Kazakov (Cuckoo Animation, Canada), about a ladybug in a world of comic catastrophe. The runner-up - who came very close! - is Flowers of Chaos of Junyong Wu (Hongkong).

The international competition for web animations (five minutes max) took place on HAFFTube, supported by YouTube. The competition started in February. The first ten days, around five films a day were uploaded. Gradually, HAFFTube filled with animation films from all over the world, surprisingly including a lot of new work. The limit for the number of films was set at fifty. When this number was reached, HAFF removed a few films every day to make room for new entries.

The deadline was set at 10 March.

Subsequently, a jury consisting of filmmakers whose films were selected for the shorts competition took over and appointed a winner from the remaining shortlist.
