View_Awards_2013

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 2013 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 with 2D/3D animation and VFX in the last 2 years, that is from 2012 to 2013, we are interested in receiving your work.
