Top winners in their categories include: “Best in Show,” “Jury’s Choice,” “Best Student Project,” “Best Computer Animated Short,” “Best Animated Feature Film,” “Best Visual Effects for Live-Action Feature Film,” “Best Visualization or Simulation,” “Best Music Video,” “Best Game,” and “Best Advertisement.” Explore the full list of winners here!
“We’re beyond ecstatic about the number of submissions we received for this year’s Computer Animation Festival,” said Mikki Rose, co-chair of the SIGGRAPH 2015 Computer Animation Festival. “The creators of these pieces made it wonderfully difficult to pick the best of the best. [Co-chair] Joe Takai and I, along with the other jurors, know that hard work and thousands of hours were put into these works of art, and each one is special. The Computer Animation Festival is a great stage to present these pieces, and we congratulate the winners.”
The SIGGRAPH Computer Animation Festival is recognized by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences as a qualifying festival and since 1999, numerous works originally presented in the Computer Animation Festival have been nominated for or have received a Best Animated Short Academy Award, including last year’s winner, “Feast.”
