Welcome to the Long Winter Studios Animation Awards (aka The Tommies) 2016! We weren’t surprised that your work is high-quality and imaginative, and we’re grateful you chose Long Winter character rigs to tell your story.
We had a blast watching your submissions and loved so many of the animations that we couldn’t settle for just one winner (check out the 2016 People’s Choice Award winner), so all of our staff members selected another favorite animation, deemed them a silly staff pick category, and we will be sending those winners a $25 gift certificate to our Long Winter Studios store! Enjoy watching our favorites below.
Congratulations to all our winners and thank you for entering the 2016 Tommies. Share these fun winners with your friends and join us next year for the 2017 Tommies – we can’t wait!
