This year the Holland Animation Film Festival(HAFF) takes place November 5-9.

Animation filmmakers from all over the world can enter the Web competition. Call for entries are open now, rules, regulations and the entry form are on HaffTube.
During the second week in September, the Web competition will launch, filling the channel with films from around the world. Festival organizers will vet and rate all films entered for competition. When 50 films have been submitted, voting begins. Each week, films will be voted off to make room for new entries.
Entries will be closed on October 22, 2008, then a jury will decide which one of the 50 films should be the winner out of the final group. The selected winner will be announced on the opening night of the festival at November 5. The winner will receive a guest accreditation and free hotel stay during the festival.
