It’s awards season and we’ve got one of our own to hand out on Cartoon Brew: our 2012 Student Animation Festival Audience Award.

We debuted ten student films last year—each excellent in their own way—as part of our Student Animation Festival. In addition to the award money that each of the filmmakers has already received, the readers of Cartoon Brew now have the opportunity to bestow the audience prize on their favorite film. The filmmaker(s) who tops the poll will receive an additional $500 (US).

The poll below will close next Wednesday, January 16, at noon (PST). For convenient judging, the ten shorts are embedded below the poll.


The Cartoon Brew Student Animation Festival is made possible by the generosity of our presenting sponsor JibJab.
