Winners

On behalf of the sponsors and judges, The Rookies would like to congratulate the following category winners.

Winner

Amelia Vaughan

ajvanim

United States | Ringling College of Art and Design

I’ve always been interested in storytelling and drawing, but also liked having problems to solve. Character animation is definitely the happy medium; I get the creative choice of deciding how to get the character’s performance across, but also the technical problem solving that comes with using computers and complicated programs. When I found out I didn't have to choose between the two, I realized I was right where I wanted to be.

Runner Up

Caecilia-Isabella Glaas

cilia

Germany | University of Applied Sciences Mainz

Like many people, animated movies have had the power to mesmerize me since my childhood, and for me, they were always a safe haven. Ever since I was especially interested in the characters I was able to identify with. Through the creation of believable CG characters, I want to pass this feeling on to other people.

Highly Commended
