Young Animation 2019: awards for artists from AFA Katowice
The second prize and a third prize shared with two others were brought home by AFA students and graduates from the Young Animation 2019 festival in Gdańsk
The second prize went to Agnieszka Świętek, a graduate of the Academy of Fine Arts in Katowice, for her film produced at the Animation and Computer Games Studio.
One of the shared third prizes in the Slam Animation competition went to the film realized by Paulina Kozieł and Magda Knapczyk, students of the AFA Katowice who represented our school in the competition.
The Young Animation festival of Polish animated films is addressed mainly at young artists and viewers. It supports and promotes Polish animated film industry, especially the works of the young generation.
The idea of Slam Animation, part of the festival, has been borrowed from the rap culture and involves an impromptu animation duel. Groups of 2 participants create short, several-second animations connected to a pre-prepared topic, disclosed only after the start of the meeting.
