Nickelodeon’s Global Shorts Program Attracts Hundreds of Entries


nick-shorts-program-post2

Nickelodeon has recently launched a new global animated shorts program in order to find raw, creative animation talent from all over the world. The program was so successful that it managed to receive more than a hundred submissions from artists, writers, designers, directors, and comedians from as many as 20 different countries across six continents.

When combined with the submissions from the US shorts program, which amount to more than 900 entries, the total number of pitches that Nickelodeon has acquired this year is more than 1000. The final batch of submissions were received at the Annecy International Film Festival, and finalists from the international program will be announced later this summer.

“We know that great creative talent and ideas come from everywhere around the world, and we are committed to finding and cultivating the next generation of creative voices and giving them an opportunity,” said Russell Hicks, President, Content and Development, Nickelodeon. “Opening submissions on a global level brings us more fresh ideas, new characters, concepts and amazingly funny stories to our audiences everywhere.”
