Animation Production Day cooperates with Hamburg Animation Award


In 2016, the Hamburg Animation Award honours outstanding students and graduates of international animation schools for the 13th time. The award promotes young, creative animation talents and places greater focus on Hamburg as an important location for the animation industry. The highlight is the award ceremony presenting the best animated short films in front of an audience of ca. 800 invited guests in Hamburg. Five prizes with a total value of EUR 11.000 are awarded to the winners.

Thanks to the new cooperation between Hamburg Animation Award and Animation Production Day  (APD) the winner of the first price will also be awarded an accreditation for Animation Production Day 2017 which takes place on May 4-5 2017 in Stuttgart.  APD is the major co-production and financing market in Germany focused exclusively on animation with 140 participants from 18 countries participating in 2016.

The APD Accreditation also includes the accreditations for the 24th Stuttgart Festival of Animated Film and FMX 2017, Conference on Animation, Effects, Games and Transmedia. This cooperation is supported by Filmförderung Hamburg Schleswig Holstein.
