New Rules for ANIMA MUNDI WEB & CEL!

New Category! Films on any Theme will also be accepted, in the category "General Theme"!
Thanks to convincing requests, we have just made some changes in the Rules of the ANIMA MUNDI WEB & CEL 2010 Contest.

The theme proposed by the Contest this year will keep being "18 Years", for the category with this same name.
The inspiration for this theme comes, of course, of the 18th Edition that Anima Mundi Festival will celebrate this year. But we are not expecting films about our festival! The idea is to illustrate through the animation language the sensations one may experiment at 18 years old: i.e. freedom, responsibility, youth, action, emotion, boldness, initiative, etc, etc, etc!

We believe this theme is wide enough and applies well both to abstract and narrative works.
The animations selected by the Contest selection committee for the "18 Years" category will compete to 3 Prizes: The Traditional Public and Professional Prizes, and the Special Extra "18 Years" Prize, also awarded by the Public Jury.
That means films in the "18 Years" category can win 3 Prizes!

But anyway the Contest will keep also open to works in any theme, in the category "General Theme". Animations in this category will not be eligible, of course, to the "18 Years" Prize. But they can win both the Public and Professional Awards!

Each of the 3 Awards consist in a 2 thousand reais cash prize and an Anima Mundi Trophee.

Oh, there's something else yet: deadline is extended up to June 14th!
Prepare your animations. Each entrant can send up to 3 works.
(Already existent works can be submitted too).
Please find the new rules

Now it's time for WEB & CEL - 18 years!

It's like that every year: as soon as the submissions for Anima Mundi Festival are closed (we had more than 1400 entries this year!) it's time to start receiving animations for our Internet and Mobile Phone Contest: ANIMA MUNDI WEB & CEL 2010.

Submissions are already open in the online entry-form in the Personal Area of the ANIMA MUNDI website! Professional and amateur animators have until May 29th to create, animate and send their works under the theme "18 YEARS".

Who doesn't want to be 18 years old? That magic age when one conquers freedom and autonomy, with the full power of youth... What kind of dreams, desires and anxieties take place in the mind of a 18 year old mind? And what better way to represent it all than Animation?

Each participant may enter up to 3 different works, that may have from 30 seconds to 10 minutes lenght. The animations will be sent online within the entry-form, already converted (by the entrant) to SWF (Flash) or FLV (Flash Video) files - with up to 10Mb weight.

Two cash prizes and Anima Mundi Trophees will be awarded to the winners chosen by the Public and professional Juries!

Please read the Rules here and participate!
