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 kids.

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 24, 2016 to watch either short animated films at 11 am or TV series made for children 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.

To enter the OIAF's Kids Jury contest, the paragraph must be submitted by e-mail: This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it , by fax: (613) 232-6315, or by regular mail: Ottawa International Animation Festival, 2 Daly Avenue, Suite 120, Ottawa, K1N 6E2.
