Held at London's Barbican Centre, Animate the World 2009 is a date for your diaries, particularly as it extends for two weekends, Saturday 4th April to Sunday 12th April. There is just time to submit an entry for the competition - must be suitable for all ages and submitted by Wednesday 1st April 2009. I've been remiss in posting on this, missing my original email. Not quite too late and there may be a chance to meet up there for I'm taking the family.
Animation Studio: Create your very own animations and share them with your friends at our new Barbican Animation Studio. Submit your animation to the site by Wed 1 Apr and you will be automatically entered into a competition to become Barbican Animator of the Year or Young Animator of the Year (for under 12s) and could also pick up some fantastic prizes along the way!
There are animated movies from all over the world, workshops for children on claymation, special effects animation and character creation, and even a singalong session on Disney's Aladdin. Although primarily for children and families, adults may wish to see Persepolis and Waltz with Bashir.
