animago 2019: Submissions are now open!

The 23rd edition of animago is coming up and submission for 3D animation projects, visual effects, design and the like is open now! This year, the coveted animago trophy will be awarded in 10 categories, with “Best In-Game Graphics” being a brand new category for 2019.

Submissions are possible until June, 30th 2019 and are completely free of charge. Submitted projects are reviewed and evaluated by an independent jury comprising renowned experts from the industry. The final winner of the “Best Still” category will be determined by an online public vote. The grand award ceremony will take place on Saturday, November 2nd in the Alte Kongresshalle in Munich.

The 10 categories:

  • NEW: Best In-Game Graphics
  • Best Visual Effects
  • Best Game Cinematic
  • Best Short Film
  • Best Advertising Production
  • Best Character
  • Best Young Production (3,000 Euro prize money sponsored by Digital Production)
  • Jury’s Prize

In the new category “Best In-Game-Graphics” graphics are evaluated as they appear in the actual game – not in pre-rendered sequences. Special attention is paid to character design, animation, game flow and the realism of movement. In the “Best Still” category, the winner out of three nominees will be determined by an online public vote.
