Zippy Frames seeks correspondents (nationally-based) to share the latest news on European and independent animation.

The wealth of information and the variety of animation projects to be developed in the European and Independent Animation world requires even more up to date and immediate information from the ones most closely involved to their making.

  • Areas:  We prioritize Production News (Shorts, TV Series/Specials, Features), Festival Awards, Festival Reports, Animation-related Prizes /Training Programmes/Residencies offered, Academic News.
