China International Cartoon and Animation Festival is China’s largest cartoon and animation event. As one of its most successful companion events, China International Children’s Cartoon Competition celebrates its 11th anniversary this year. This competition expanded to North America last year and received an enthusiastic response in 2015. Over five hundred pieces of work were submitted, and ultimately 70 outstanding entries were selected to be sent to China for the final competition. Li Su, a student from Vancouver Lord Byng Secondary School, won the “Global Special Winner” and other North American young artists received 8 gold, 13 silver and 16 bronze honors.
