Toon Boom's
Harmony animation software is used by major studios and animators everywhere, including Dreamworks, Lucas Film, Fox, Universal, South Park Sudios and the Jim Henson company to name a few.


For over a decade, LaCie Rugged portable hard drives have thrived where only the toughest survive — the film sets, photo shoots, and music studios of the world’s most influential creative pros. Why? Because LaCie Rugged products are the industry’s most trusted way to capture and transport data in the field.



The Hiive and Toon Boom teams will be judging entries monthly.

We are always on the lookout for great animators to spotlight on our social media and ones to watch profiles, so even if you aren't picked we hope to promote your work within the community.
