It’s hard to get a break in this world and it’s great when big companies actively help young talent. Red Bull are running their Canimation contest – a nationwide search for supreme animation talent; open to anyone, the only rule is that [their] blue and silver can needs to take centre stage. With prizes ranging from laptops and software to internships at Aardman, The Mill and 12foot6, this goes a long way to help young animators get up there.

Here is just one of the entries, there are loads more to support.
