Toon Boom Animation and the French Animation Association (AFCA) today announced the launch of Animation Celebration.

The worldwide web-based animation contest is open until 20 September 2006. Submissions must be animated short movies of under two minutes duration and must be based on the theme of 'An unusual encounter'.
A committee composed of AFCA and Toon Boom's representatives will go through the movies to assemble a short list consisting of a maximum of ten movies, which will be submitted to a public vote. The three winning entries will be showcased online for a year, and will be screened in Paris and Montreal at the International Animation Celebration Day on October 28, 2006. The three winners will also receive a copy of Toon Boom Solo.
