Call for animation loop competition


Did you miss the short film competition deadline? Don’t worry. You still have a chance to participate in Turku Animated Film Festival. We’re organising a loop competition in cooperation with Animaatioklinikka – organisation for Finnish animation professionals. All the loops submitted following the guidelines below will be screened in the wall of Turku City Library during TAFF. The best ones will make it to a final event held on Friday August 26th. The best loop will be awarded with a cash prize of 300€.

EDIT: Submission deadline has been extended until Aug 7th. Now you can also submit loops outside of the competition without a theme. To get your loop screened, the other guidelines still hold.

Submission guidelines
– Theme for competition is “keyhole”
– Make sure it’s made by you and you have the copyright to all the material used
– Make sure there’s no sound
– Make sure it doesn’t contain pornographic material, incite hatred or include defamatory or discriminatory content. After all it will be screened in a public place.
– Make sure it’s animated and it loops
– Maximum length of one loop is 10 seconds (one rotation)
– Don’t put titles or credits in the loop
– Maximum one submission per person
– Submission deadline August 7th

You can submit the work as a gif or as a video file. Just make it a compact file and include the link to a downloadable file in the form below.
