Congratulations to FIRST Robotics Competition Team 846, The Funky Monkeys, from San Jose, California, USA, for winning the 2019 Digital Animation Award sponsored by Automation Direct!


Check out their wonderful animation here:

The judges noted that this entry had “Fantastic animation and storytelling.” I couldn’t agree more!


And take a look at the Judges’ Picks from this year, which you can find here. The quality of these animations is truly outstanding, I’m sure it was difficult for the judges to pick a winner. The president of Theory Studios, an animation and augmented reality studio that assists with the judging, said “WOW. I want to bring some of these kids on as interns this summer, there are a couple that are amazing.” That’s high praise from folks that make their living doing this kind of work.

Congratulations again to our winner, The Funky Monkeys, and all our Judges’ Picks!
