Hello Everyone. The nominations are known and have been published on Blender.org
Go see the official page if you want to know whether your animation made it in:
If your animation didn’t make it, we’ll see if there’s time to just show it, but we don’t have that much. I have to congratulate the community on a record number of submissions, and good ones at that!
See you next friday!
Below here, the original announcement with more detailed information.

Details about the categories.
- Best short film
[INDENT]This covers the nominated work the audience likes best, because it is just the best experience to watch… whether it is for story telling, the jokes, the design or the cute characters.
[/INDENT]2. Best character animation.
[INDENT]Covers only character animation. The submitted video does not have to be a finished product. Only the animation of the character(s) is looked at. It can be fully rendered, but may for instance also be a video capture from the game engine.
[/INDENT]3. Best designed short film.
[INDENT]Covers only the visual aspects of the submitted video. Simply put, the prettiest short film.
[/INDENT]About submitting a piece.
The deadline for submissions has past. If you have a nice video that you would like us to show at the conference feel free to submit it through the form. But at this point no promises… we have a pretty full schedule.
For those of you who submitted a piece. You should have received an e-mail message confirming your submission. If you haven’t. Then let me know as soon as possible!
