The International Motion Art Awards 5 is Now Open for Submissions

AbelCine is a proud sponsor of the American Illustration-American Photography 5th International Motion Art Awards being presented at Big Talk in a screening at the SVA Theater on November 2nd. 

This event celebrates photographers, illustrators, and designers who make their work move in all media. In recognizing the author’s “eye” and “hand” as paramount to the creative process, the IMAAs pay tribute to the best motion art from the year and offer a unique opportunity to the winners and their collaborators for visibility, promotion, and bragging rights within the industry.

When you enter, your work will be seen by a jury made up exclusively of top creative professionals. The winners will receive a grand prize of a Sony PMW200 HD Pro-Level Camera and a Miller 1511 Carbon-Fiber Pro Tripod with head provided by AbelCine and a $250 credit from BorrowLenses. Winning work will be showcased in a winner’s reel at the AI-AP Party and at Big Talk, the highly-anticipated annual book launch event and symposium taking place on November 2-3 in NYC. The winning projects will also be presented in a searchable slide show announcement to AI-AP’s 50,000 subscribers, as well as on The Archive, the AI-AP’s exclusive, searchable, juried image collection at ai-ap.com. The winners will also be promoted in Motion Arts Pro, AI-AP’s daily email newsletter sent to over 20,000 subscribers.
