Young Audiences Official Competition
The OIAF is proud to announce the first round of selections for OIAF

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

The OIAF competition includes categories for narrative, experimental, student, commissioned and feature animation. There is also a separate competition for Young Audiences.   Prizes will be awarded to category winners along with Grand Prizes for Independent Short Animation and Feature Animation.

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 youth. 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.
