This year I entered the QANTAS Spirit of Youth Art (SOYA) Awards in two categories: Animation and Visual Design & Communications category.
I was selected as a Finalist in the Animation category and Highly Commended in the Visual Design & Communications category! :O Was super excited to be a finalist along with friends, people who studied the same University course & those who I really look up to in the industry.
Congrats to this year’s winner: Pete Lowey who took out the award! He’s such a talented, humble and lovely human being; win well deserved.
Check out his work on his website, my favourite is his original “Alfred Skimmy” series, makes me giggle every time.
Also big congrats to Runners up: Darcy Prentagast and Luke Saunders, and all the other finalist! So much talent, super excited about the future of the Australian Animation Industry 🙂
