As promised in my post showcasing my own entry into Reallusion's Animation@Work Competition for 2018, this is my post letting you know the winners have been announced.

This time my entry didn't even manage a special mention, unlike my entry from four years ago that won a Best Animation award in its category despite being shorter, taking less time to make, and featuring far less technical skill and actual animation, than my current entry.

The fact is, in four years, awareness of CrazyTalk Animator, and the number of people who've become proficient with it has grown to a more competitive field. Demonstrated by the overall winner from 2014's competition, Garry Pye, coming in at third place with an animation that is easily streets ahead of his work with CTA from four years ago.


Overall that's a good thing for Reallusion, CTA, and the CTA community. Especially CTA content creators interested in building a viable business in the Reallusion Content Market Place. Here's hoping the competition will only get bigger and continue to improve in quality in the years ahead.

The Winners


With that said, in my opinion, some of the winning animations feel like they're at the level of network television animation, and wouldn't look out of place in a line up of Saturday morning cartoons. I've embeded the first place winners in each of the three categories below. You can view all the winners and special mention animations on the Winners Page.

Winner of the Best YouTuber Animation was Francesco Tammaccaro with Squangy & Mr. Bowlsacc




Winner of the Best Comic Animation was Howard Vause with The Curious Child | Act 1




Winner of the Best Business Animation was Nesterenko Viktoriya with WELCOME TO ODESSA



Congratulations to all those who won, placed, or got a special mention. The rest of you, lift your game ya bunch of losers... Nah, not really, you're alright. Good on us all for having a go!

  1. Excellent commentary David - for me as a relative newcomer to CTA - a real insight. Your post also scores high on magnanimity :)
