Animate Projects champions experiments and creative risk taking in animation across a broad spectrum of practice. We are the only UK organisation dedicated to commissioning and exhibiting innovative animation online and on digital platforms. animateprojects.org has an international reputation as a place to encounter outstanding work by British artists and receives more than 24,000 visitors each month.
The Animate OPEN is for complete works by UK-based artists, animators and filmmakers, produced since January 2009.
A Jury will select up to ten films for exhibition and there will be two cash prizes – one awarded by the Jury (Â£1000), and an Audience Prize (Â£300), open to a public vote. Each artist included in the exhibition will be paid a Â£100 fee.
Selected films will be presented online at animateprojects.org, along with short interviews with the artists. Selected films and artists will be featured in a ‘newspaper’ catalogue and may also be included in Animate OPEN: Digitalis screenings and events.
Animate OPEN: Digitalis will be online from July 2011.
