Squeaky Wheel is looking for short animated videos and films for our 9th Annual Outdoor Animation Festival, which will take place on July 28, 2012 in Days Park (Buffalo, NY). Submissions can be any genre or style of animation, under 5 minutes. Emerging artists are encouraged to submit work. There is no submission fee.

Submissions are accepted by email only. Submissions must include a link to the video online (YouTube/Vimeo/etc), a short artist bio and a 2-3 sentence description of the submitted work in the body of the email. Send submissions to submissions@squeaky.org with ANIMATION FESTIVAL SUBMISSION 2012 in the email subject line. Notification of selected participants will be in early July 2012 and a Hi-res Quicktime file will be requested. If accepted, your work will be featured in a highly visible forum in Western New York, a location that is bursting with media art activity and home to the International Center for Excellence in Animation at Daemen College.
