Are YOU, or is someone you know, the next Young Animator of the Year?
Secondary school students from all over the island of Ireland are invited to submit their short animated films to the national YAOTY awards.
Set in magical Dingle, on the most westerly peninsula of Europe, Animation Dingle is a festival that was created for students and has been moulded by them over the years. We want to draw attention to the talented young people in Ireland and give them a spotlight in which to showcase their skills, so we run the YAOTY awards which do just that!
Listed as ‘One of the top Not-To-Be-Missed events in the World’ by Animation Magazine, Animation Dingle is attended by all the major animation colleges and studios within Ireland, along with delegates from Disney, Amazon, RTÉ, CBBC, CBeebies and many more. Our festival prides itself on its ability to create a culture of interaction, sharing and support whereby top industry experts share with upcoming students in a relaxed setting.
