Where are all the Unpolished movies?

There seems to be a serious dearth of UNPOLISHED category movies entered so far. Since we recently changed the name of that category from the somewhat insulting "Crappy", it seemed like a good idea to clarify.  Unpolished animations are exactly that - unpolished. For whatever reason, they are less than professional in quality, but they still have something appealing about them. (Student work, just for fun projects etc.)  Bottom line, don't be afraid to classify your film as "Unpolished". There's a prize for those movies too. :-)

What is a Series Development Deal?

A lot of people involved in making animation have an idea they'd like to see produced. However they simply don't have the resources to do it on their own. The Grand winner of the Aniboom Awards will be given a budget of $25,000 plus the professional and marketing power of the Aniboom Creators Studio to make their animated series happen. Not too shabby!

Aniboom Awards are back!
Aniboom Awards are back!

It's hard to believe a whole year has gone by since the 1st Annual Aniboom Awards back in 2006. Since then so much has happened. Aniboom moved offices, Shapeshifter was born, the Boomzones expanded, and you can't forget Micro-Smotion...and now its like we've come full circle.  It's kind of emotional *sniff*.  Anyway, get ready to watch, rate and get down with some great animation!
