We Won!

Congratulations, you did it!

The industry judges chose Mike's "R.I.P. Alice" as a first place winner, tied with another entry.

They picked Colleen's "House of Woooo" as the second place winner.

The Animation Magazine Staff Picks were: 2nd place, Jo's "The Princess and the Mermaid" and 3rd place: Emily's "Cow Kitty"

When choosing a winner, judges didn't know which entries were students or working professionals. You guys were competing with the world and did great! Also, I was told this morning (Shanghai time) that there was a strict critera: the concepts weren't just what the judges liked but what they could actually green light at this moment (i.e. what they're looking for for concepts).

I think we also did something in the public vote as well but I don't know for sure. Great stuff and a special thanks to our own local judges!

Here are all the entries...Sorry, i didn't know they were happening or I would have contacted you all to get out there and vote for your favorites.

I'm in Shanghai showing the grad book around and talking to potential educational and industry partners. Back Wednesday.
