It’s time for breakout animators to polish up their clips and fill out a few entry forms. Nicktoons and Frederator Studios have just put out a call for entries as they gear up to run the fourth annual Nicktoons Network Animation Festival. Would-be competitors can register at www.nicktoonsnetwork.com to get the ball rolling, and the deadline for submissions is June 1. Co-produced by Radar Cartoons, the fest is looking for projects rendered in any style of animation, but 10 minutes is the maximum length for eligibility. Pre-selected shorts are then showcased online and on air on Nicktoons from August 26 to 31. A grand jury will chose the U$10,000 prize winner from a field that’s been narrowed down to 10.

In related news, Canadian animation software developer Toon Boom has just announced a new contest for up-and-coming animators in Singapore. The Toon Boom Animation Festival is a joint-venture between Toon Boom, the Canadian High Commission, the Media Development Authority of Singapore and the Institute of Technical Education. The competition runs until July 1 and is open to students in Singpore submitting wholly original works.

The winners will receive a one-month internship at a top animation studio. For more details, check out www.toonboom.com/singaporeFestival.
