2017 Official Competition / Panorama Screenings

The highlight of the Ottawa International Animation Festival are the Official Competition screenings.  These programs feature the best new animation from around the world.  

On average, the OIAF receives over 2000 submissions each year, with this year clocking in at 1992 total entries. The OIAF programming team selected 110 finalists to be featured in the Official Competition. 45 additional films will be shown out-of-competition in Panorama screenings.  
  
OIAF competition includes categories for narrative, non-narrative, student, commissioned and feature animation. There is also a separate competition for films and series made for young audiences. Prizes will be awarded to category winners along with Grand Prizes for Independent Short Animation and Feature Animation.

View the full list of finalists here.

During the Festival, three official juries sit with the audience and judge the short, feature and children’s competition screenings. The Short and Feature jury members are chosen from the international animation community. The children’s jury is comprised of Ottawa-area children. Apply to be on the children's jury here.

Jury decisions are announced during the OIAF’s awards ceremony on the Saturday evening of each festival. A screening of a selection of award-winning films follows on the festival’s closing night. At their discretion, the International Juries may also award additional special prizes. The Juries have the right to withhold an award where no entry, in its view, meets the standards for recognition.
