It is also notorious the importance of two new spaces in Animacam this year:
Women Animating, a Blog dedicated at women in the animation industry, witch increased the female participation in more than 50 films at the Festival.
Cartoons Made by Children.
 For the first time in a Festival like this, we got animation in several techniques competing in the Official Section and coming from places such Egypt, England and Spain.

From Animacam we congratulate the Winners, we truly appreciate the collaboration of Participants and Users, and we show the gratitude to our Sponsors (Xacobeo –Xacobeo Filme-, Consellería de Industria, and Tecnópole): without all them we´ll never could keep walking together to “animate the world”.
