Animation du Monde 2020 NAICCON’s Winning Crop!


Nairobi Comic Con hosted Animation du Monde for the second year. East Africa produced a bumper crop of animation talent for penultimate Animation du Monde 2020 preliminary round in Sub-Saharan Africa. Like always, only 3 could be chosen to go through to the Animation du Monde 2020 African Continental Final taking place at DISCOP Johannesburg.

  • Agent 254 by Lydia Mugure (Kenya)
  • Rosa’s Diary  by Ndanusa Danjuma Judah (Nigeria)
  • The Fam by Kabelo Maaka (South Africa)

The Fam had been entered into a previous edition of Animation du Monde. Like so many other projects, Kabelo did not make it through to the continental final. Unlike many others, Kabelo took the feedback the judges gave her. She improved her pitch to win the day at NAICCON 2019

One of the core missions of Animation du Monde is to teach creatives that it’s not the winning that matters but the journey. Failure is part of the creative process. Because, as an individual, it is important to stand up and try again

The final Sub Saharan preliminary round of Animation du Monde 2020 is taking place at Lagos Comic Con. Which is an opportunity to enter for the first time or your second, third, or even umpteenth time. The competition regulations can be viewed HERE.

As a developing animation industry, Africa and its creatives have to take every opportunity to learn. We might have unique stories to tell. But, we still have to develop our creative sensibilities. Something that the judges that sit on the Animation du Monde panels have helped with
