Sydney, Australia -- After winning the 2012 NSW Export Award in Arts and Entertainment in October this year, Animal Logic announced it has taken out the country’s top entertainment and arts export honours at the 50th Australian Export Awards National Ceremony in Canberra this week.
The Australian Trade Commission (Austrade) in association with the Australian Chamber of Commerce and Industry (ACCI) presented the Australia Network Arts and Entertainment Exporter of the Year Award, which is given for outstanding export achievement across all cultural industries including the arts, performing arts, electronic and on-line entertainment.
Animal Logic was given the accolade for its growing success as an independent Australian producer of digital entertainment for global markets. The company, which was established in 1991 has been responsible for creating iconic imagery in films like The Matrix, Moulin Rouge, House of Flying Daggers, Happy Feet, 300, LEGO Star Wars: The Padawan Menace™ as well as award winning international advertising campaigns.
Animal Logic CEO Zareh Nalbandian said, “This award is a great credit to the incredible technical and creative talent and artistry at Animal Logic. Everyone from our producers to our CTO is committed to innovation, efficiency and the pursuit of excellence which is the fundamental under pinning of our success.”
The company’s CFO Rob Cornish said, “Our industry is hyper competitive, with major external factors to contend with, such as our inflated Australian dollar and increasingly aggressive tax incentives in jurisdictions all around the world. It’s a real honour to be recognized for our continued achievements in this tough environment.”
