Kids Jury
The Ottawa International Animation Festival is inviting local kids to enter its annual Kids Jury contest. Ten animation enthusiasts, ranging from the ages of 8 to 12 years old, will be chosen to judge this year's competition of short films or TV series made for young audiences.

To be chosen for the jury, local kids are invited to write one paragraph about their favourite animated film. Ten lucky winners and their families will be whisked away to the Festival on Saturday, September 23, 2017 to watch either the Animated Shorts for Young Audiences competition at 11 am or Series for Young Audiences competition at 1 pm. They will pick their favourite films or TV episode and award prizes on stage to the winning filmmakers later that evening, at 7 pm.
