Is your school ready for the challenge? The Cartoon Challenge at KAFI (Kalamazoo Animation Festival International) 2009 is open for team submissions from September 1, 2008 to January 16, 2009. Ten teams of animations students from colleges and art schools across the continent will spend four intense days and nights on the campus of Kalamazoo Valley Community College. Their mission is to create an original 30-second PSA on a topic chosen by the event's sponsor.
