BANGKOK – The Public Relations Department is organizing a competition called the ‘Young Animator’ Contest, which aims to open the opportunity for young creative undergraduate students interested in animation production to showcase their potential.
The contest will be open to undergraduate students currently studying at Thai universities. A maximum of three students is allowed per team, with one teacher serving as an advisor.
Accepted entries include all forms of completed animated video with an English soundtrack no longer than three minutes, under the theme ‘Trust in Thailand,’ which reflects the Thai identity and promotes a favorable image of Thailand to the world.
Contestants will have chances to win prizes worth up to 80,000 baht, have their work broadcast on Government-owned English language television ‘NBT World’, and take part in workshops taught by Thailand’s notable animators and animation studios.
Interested teams can submit their applications and videos for the ‘Young Animator’ Contest from now until June 30th.
