Tommies Awards 2017: Staff Pick Winners

Tommies Staff Pick Winners 2017

the Long Winter Studios’ Animation Awards!

This year’s Tommies submissions were better than EVER, and we’re grateful you chose Long Winter character rigs to tell your story.

We had a blast watching the sweet animations our amazing users submitted (check out the 2017 People’s Choice Award winner). All of our staff members selected a favorite animation and we will be sending those winners a 1 free month of membership to our sweet new service with all 38+ of our characters for a whole year!

All winners will be featured on our Long Winter website and social media accounts and receive exclusive Tommies winner badges they can proudly display on their sites and videos. This year we are also giving all our winners a free e-critique from our CEO Andrew Conroy, an animator with credits in “Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs,” and “Life of Pi.”

Congratulations to all our winners and thank you for entering the 2017 Tommies. Share these fun winners with your friends and join us next year for the 2018 Tommies – we can’t wait!
