BROOKLYN -- The 15th Animation Block Party is open for submissions for this year’s festival, set for July 26-29 in Brooklyn.

To mark the 15th anniversary of ABP, every jury award winner will receive a Toon Boom bonus prize of Harmony Essentials and Storyboard Pro licenses.

Dedicated to exhibiting the world’s best independent, professional and student animation, Animation Block Party is the largest animation festival on the East Coast.

Last summer’s festival highlights included the 40th anniversary of Raggedy Ann and Andy in 35mm, an Evening with the team behind BoJack Horseman, a Cartoon Network studio showcase, and more than 100 animated shorts in competition.

Films screening in the competition are eligible for eight juried awards in categories ranging from minute movie to experimental film.
