Consisting of a unique blend of talks, workshops, networking events, exhibitions and screenings, Animex promotes an ethos of collaboration and sharing and prides itself on its warm friendly atmosphere.

Animex is your chance to meet industry experts, discuss the state-of-the-art, see behind the scenes of the biggest hits, and to have a great time at one of the premier games and animation events anywhere in the world.

Judging panels from previous awards have included representatives from LAIKA, ToonBoom Animation, Beryl Productions International, Atomhawk Design, Pixar, ILM, Disney, Aardman Animation, Sony Image Works, DreamWorks and Electronic Arts, to name a few.
