Five Catalan companies finalists of the Cartoon Tributes

Informal Meeting

The city of Girona will be host to the second edition of the Cartoon Tributes, which the European Association of Animation Film awards in recognition of companies' contributions to the development of the European animation industry. The 750-plus participants in the 18th Cartoon Forum (Girona, September 19 - 22) will vote on the winners of the three categories of the Cartoon Tributes: Broadcaster of the Year, Investor/Distributor of the Year and Producer of the Year. Spain and France, with 5 finalists each, are the countries with most nominees. Of the Spanish companies nominated as finalists, all 5 are Catalan or have offices in Catalonia.

  • Televisió de Catalunya: one of 5 candidates for Broadcaster of the Year for being "a driving force for the Catalan animation industry".
