Screenings at University of Teesside, Arc and BALTIC
We’ve come a long way since the very first Student Animation Awards in 2001 - an awards programme that not only sought to recognise the variety of animation techniques and new technologies emerging from the School of Computing, but also looked to reward students of outstanding animation ability studying at the University of Teesside.
Now this former School initiative has become a platform for students representing colleges and universities from all over the world to showcase their animation. The quality and quantity of work received has far surpassed all our expectations and we are delighted to announce that in our very first international year we have attracted over 350 entries representing 24 different countries from around the world.
We extend our sincere thanks to all those who have helped make this inaugural event a truly inspired experience. We would also like to thank our sponsors (Adobe, Alias, Apple, Chromacolour, Corel, Discreet, Focal Press, Iomega, Leitch, Macromedia, Maxon, Nvidia, Pixelution, ToonBoom and Viglen) not only for supporting this year’s event but also for supporting the creation of three new categories for next year’s Animex Student Animation Awards, categories that not only look to acknowledge emerging animation techniques, but also look to acknowledge emerging practitioners in the field of animation.
