‘Trickstar Business’ is the name of the animation industry’s business award which will be awarded for the third time during Animation Production Days (APD) 2019 by the Stuttgart Festival of Animated Film (ITFS).
From now on, you can apply with a project that has an innovative business concept, for example in the area of financing, distribution, marketing or exploitation of rights. All projects submitted to APD also qualify for the Trickstar Business Award. Companies with an innovative business model can also apply for the award independently of participation in APD.
The Trickstar Business Award is the world’s first animation award to be explicitly focused on business. The prize is worth 7,500 € sponsored by the Stuttgart Region. In 2018, the award winner was the Dutch project “House of Broken Hearts” by Tünde Vollenbroek (Studio Pupil). The Trickstar Business Award will be awarded on May 3, 2019 in an award gala at the Stuttgart L-Bank Rotunda. There are more information in the regulations and submission form.
