For the second year in a row, Cartoon Brew is giving away two full festival passes to the Ottawa International Animation Festival (September 20-24) courtesy of the fine folks up at the Ottawa fest. This is North America’s biggest, and quite frankly, only major animation festival. It’s THE place to get connected with animation artists and other people who love the animation medium. This year promises to be extra special since it’s the festival’s 30th anniversary. And, of course, both Brewmasters – Jerry and Amid – will be hanging around the festival as well.
Each pass we’re giving away is valued at $200 (Canadian) and includes:
* Access to all OIAF screenings and workshops
* Access to the OIAF picnic
* Access to all parties
* OIAF Program Book
* Personal hug from the festival’s artistic director Chris Robinson
Ok, we made up that last perk, but you get everything else. To enter just send us a drawing that tells us why you deserve to go to the festival. Creativity, originality and draftsmanship count. The deadline to enter is by the end of this Sunday, August 27. Email your drawings to amid (at) animationblast (dot) com and jbeck6540 (at) aol (dot) com. Here are last year’s winners.
