3D Wire, the annual animation, video game and new media market that takes place annually in Spain, has announced multiple calls for projects for its ninth edition. The event is set to be held in Segovia from October 2-8.

The event presents a one-of-a-kind opportunity for creators and producers to present their work to a wide array of industry players and receive development feedback and distribution opportunities.

This year, 3D Wire is hosting three different calls for projects: Portuguese-Spanish animation and video game projects, European transmedia and new media projects, and international online animation series. All of these calls have an entry deadline of July 28.

High-profile projects have been presented at 3D Wire throughout the years including the Danish crowdfunded series The Reward, the Franco-Belgian feature Jack and the Cuckoo-Clock Heart, and the Goya-winning Spanish cg feature Capture the Flag.

Here are the general guidelines for each call:

This call is open to projects from companies or production companies registered in Spain or Portugal. A maximum of three projects per company may be submitted. All animation techniques and formats are accepted in the following categories: short films, feature films, animation series, and video games, as well as apps and animation-driven vr projects.

A variety of awards will be presented. The public entity, RTVE, will give awards to the most innovative video game, vr video game, and app project, respectively. Mobile provider Movistar+ will award a prize for short film project, that includes paying the winning filmmaker 9,000 euros to acquire their short for a two-year distribution period. The winner of the award last year was Khris Cembe’s Mum’s the Word (pictured below).

In addition to awards, several projects will be selected to receive business and creative consultancy from international animation and video game experts.

This call is open to projects that are being developed by European producers or in co-production with European countries. The projects also have to be designed to be distributed on at least two different platforms. The goal of the call is to encourage and facilitate transnational European co-productions, while helping to find new partners for financing, developing, and creating strong European-created transmedia projects.

The call stems from 3D Wire’s belief that animation, video games, and new media are converging into a single dynamic industry sector. Attention will be given to projects that are not only animation or videogame, but true transmedia experiences with interactive elements that can be consumed and shared across multiple platforms. Projects for a wide range of technologies and devices can be pitched, including those that incorporate augmented reality, 3D printing, gamification, connected toys, and wearable technology.

This call is open to online animation series from anywhere in the world. Átomo Network will present two awards: Átomo Network Award, to the best web series in any language other than Spanish, and Premio Robot Atómico, to the best web series in Spanish language.

Submissions are accepted for series that target the following ranges: kids (6-11), teen (12+), or adult (18+). Preschool series are not eligible for this call. Five or more episodes of the series must have been produced to date.

The winner of the Átomo Network Award will have their project dubbed and published in Spanish on the Átomo Network Channel, with a possible option of co-production for future episodes.

The Premio Robot Atómico will receive an advance of $500 against a distribution agreement to publish it on Átomo Network Channel, and also includes the possible option of co-production for future episodes.
