Animation Students are invited to create Stings for Animation Dingle 2022.
One Sting will receive THE BEST STING AWARD at our YouTube Kids Animation Student Awards.
Our theme for 2022 STINGS is
THE UNBELIEVABLY FABULOUS, FICTITIOUS AND INVENTED LIFE OF AN PHIAST
This year Animation Dingle celebrates its 10th Birthday!
We are inviting you to reveal and fabulise, fictionalise and re-invent our wonderful An Phiast…..
Is he just imagining it? Is it real? Is this a NEW An Phiast? Whatever it is, it is FABULOUS!…unbelievably so….
We are looking for you to tell us, to show us and to reveal this side of our mascot to the world of animation.
An Phaist in your hands – being fabulous, fictitious and invented by you – as only An Phiast can be.
Remember, if your sting is selected, your Unbelievably Fabulous, Fictitious and Invented Life of An Phiast will be revealed for all to see at Animation Dingle 2022…
…and we will be waiting!
