Quickdraw Animation Society is now accepting applications for our Chris J Melnychuk Memorial Scholarship for Emerging Animators! We want you to learn how to animate and make your first animated film with us! Applications are due September 10 2016 at 12:00pm (noon).
The Chris J. Melnychuk Memorial Scholarship is a production-focused program offered by the Quickdraw Animation Society (or QAS) intended to assist individuals in making their first independent animated short film. The scholarship is a non-cash award open to Calgary, AB (and area) artists of all disciplines, at all stages in their careers, who are interested in the art of animation. No previous animation experience is necessary to apply for this scholarship.
The CJM Memorial Scholarship fosters the development and training of two emerging animators per calendar year through classes, mentorship, free studio space, free equipment and resource access, and a modest supply budget to create their first independent animated short film. QAS will publicly screen the completed films, ideally at our annual GIRAF International Animation Festival the November following the successful completion of the program.
