View Award 2016

Last year, the VIEW AWARD brought forth some astonishingly talented animators into the public and industry spotlight.

After the international success of past edition of our VIEW AWARD, the 2016 contest is ready to widen its scope with new themes, new subjects and new contestants.

As the last few years, VIEW will include both students and non-students works, making our contest more appealing than ever.
However, works by students will be especially welcome, since VIEW will always be the place to express and discover new Digital Talents.

So here’s your chance! If you have made an animated short or videogame from 2015 to 2016, we are interested in receiving your work.

And Good Luck: you may become the winner of this year’s VIEW AWARD!
