Archive: Call for entries (short animation):

An animated film is defined as a motion picture in which movement and characters’ performances are created using a frame-by-frame techniq ue, and usually falls into one of the two general fields of animation: narrative or abstract. Some of the  techniques of animating films include but are not limited to hand-drawn animation, computer animation, stop-motion, clay animation, pixilation, cutout animation, pinscr een, camera multiple pass imagery, kaleidoscopic effects created frame-by-frame, and drawing on the film frame itself.  Motion capture and real-time puppetry are not by themselves animation techniques.  An animated short film has a running time of 40 minutes or less.  An animated feature film has a running time of more than 40 minutes.  In an animated film, animation must figure in no less than 75 percent of the picture’s running time. In addition, a narrative animated film must have a significant number of the major characters animated.  If the picture is created in a cinematic style that could be mistaken for live action, the filmmaker(s) must also submit information supporting how and why the picture is substantially a work of animation rather than live action.  Documentary short subjects that are animated may be submitted in either the Animated Short Film category or the Documentary Short Subject category, but not both
