Important

  • Combine all your best work into one single entry. Multiple entries with individual projects will not be reviewed.
  • This category is not just for character animators. The term 3D Animation refers to the visual style of the end product, not the single discipline of animation keyframes.
  • Make sure your work is primarily composed of 3D elements, otherwise you should submit work to Concept Art & Illustration category.
  • Any design related work should be submitted to Concept Art & Illustration.
  • Judges are looking for artists creating work in the style of “Pixar” and “Dreamworks” films.
