You are invited to contribute to the evolution.

Juried Competition
Entries must be completed after 1 January 2007. All entries will be considered for the Best of Show award (qualifying the entry for Academy Award consideration), for a Jury Award, and several supporting awards. Audience favorites will be tallied daily, culminating in an Audience Prize. Awards will be presented during the final screening and presentation.

Curated Screenings
The Computer Animation Festival seeks the best computer-generated animation the digital world has to offer from the past, present, and future. Short form or long form, any subject or topic, feature-length animation or an already-curated group of screenings.
