A total of 1,076 projects from 58 different countries were submitted to the 2016 animago competition. An independent animago jury consisting of experts drawn from the fields of film, post-production, industrial visualization and science & education was responsible for whittling the group down to 33 nominated projects; after that, they chose prizewinning productions in a total of nine categories. In the Best Still and 20th Anniversary categories, the winners were chosen by public vote. A unique feature this year was the Architecture Special Prize awarded by DETAIL, the international magazine for architecture: in this category, a second jury of architectural experts chose the winners from three nominees in two categories, Still and Film.

The awards ceremony formed the festive highlight of the ongoing two-day animago CONFERENCE (October 27-28), where globally renowned animation experts and VFX luminaries are giving keynote presentations on their current projects and discussing all the latest industry standards, trends and perspectives with the more than 1,000 participants.
