Tips for Entering

AEAF receives a lot of entries, which makes judging exciting but challenging. The first place judges look when trying to narrow the field and make critical decisions is the Entry Form. This form is your chance to tell us about your work and your team, but unfortunately, many projects arrive with no other information than a title and the name of a studio or artist.

But you can include lots of other details. For example -

- Who were the lead artists on the project and what were their roles?
- What were the main tools in your pipeline? Did your pipeline take advantage of them in special ways? Have you used proprietary software?

- How much time did you devote to the project?

- What was challenging, easy, surprising, fun? What did you learn?

- Have you achieved something groundbreaking in this project that you want us to know about? What has been done for the first time?

When you submit your projects, if you do not have enough time to fill in every field or supply all the info you’d like to, you can upload your work and then send more details later via email. We will even remind you.

The more the judging panel knows about projects the better because the best VFX work is made to look simple, easy or even invisible. Memorable animated characters and brilliant FX are subtle and look effortless. The judges will understand the work much more accurately if you supply background details.

You don't need to write something complex. Lists and bullet points are good. Give the judges and your projects a head start by sharing some of your process and tools.
