Pixelhunters & Middle East Tallents Awards in a collaboration with ANIMAGO AWARDS

animago AWARD 2014 – Participate now!

Here we go: DIGITAL PRODUCTION, German trade magazine for digital media productions and visualisation, is already in the FINAL CALL FOR ENTRIES for the 18th animago AWARD. And you’re invited to register online at www.animago.com for the 2014 contest. The registration deadline for submissions is July 21, 2014.
More than 1,000 submissions in 2013, which were sent to us by international digital artists from 66 different countries – what a great recognition for our project. The animago AWARD has indeed now firmly established itself as a major name across the entire globe. Last year, the animago celebrated a record number of submitted productions and once again reflected a fantastic range of themes that showcased not only the inspiring creativity of the artists but also their outstanding technical performance and skill.

Especially we like to call attention to “BEST YOUNG PRODUCTION”. Each year this category is endowed with prize money € 3,000. Each person of the winner team additionally will get a RenderCube sponsored by our partner CADnetwork.
Also a big Thank You goes to Dell & Nvidia. They will be sponsoring the category “JURY´S PRIZE” and the lucky winners will receive a Precision Workstation M3800 with a high-performance NVIDIA® Quadro® graphics card.

Participation is free of charge and worthwhile for both professionals and newcomers. Individuals who send in their productions are not just subjecting their work to the vote of the independent jury; they are also taking advantage of the opportunity to showcase their abilities within the industry. The ceremonial animago AWARD gala on October 16, 2014 at the Potsdam-Babelsberg Media City is the climax of the two-day animago AWARD & CONFERENCE.

Pixelhunters & FUNN Sharjah Media Arts for Youth and Children in collaboration for Middle East Talents Awards

We are very pleased and excited to announce that Pixelhunters is now in collaboration with FUNN Sharjah Media Arts for Youth and Children (www.funn.ae)– an organization under the patronage of Her Highness Sheikha Jawaher Al Qasimi, wife of His Highness, the Ruler of Sharjah that promotes media art for the youth of Sharjah and United Arab Emirates.

Governed under Sharjah Islamic Culture Capital, FUNN works on its vision towards nurturing the future generation of creative artists in media and film.
The first Middle East Talents Awards created a huge hit among young artists and thriving individuals in getting their skills seen across the world. This year, we would like to announce that META will coordinate with FUNN to bring about the best of our youth in media arts.

Middle East Talents Awards will help in supporting and promoting Sharjah International Children’s Film Festival – an event hosted by FUNN to develop young film makers and digital artists amidst this highly competitive industry. The film festival is to encourage and promote the media literacy of young generation, cultivate children’s sense of creativity and show their skills in filmmaking.

In relation to this, short films created by children participating in Middle East Talents Awards will also have the chance to be showcased to FUNN’s film festival. A representative from their organization will also become one of the judges for META’s next season of awards.

Just like FUNN, Pixelhunters will conduct workshops on computer animation during their festival – all free of charge. This is to continue to impart our knowledge and expertise to the children who are showing interest in digital arts. We are happy to be a part of this collaboration while we continue to push through our educational activities for the youth.
