The broadcaster asked students from the UK's top animation colleges to produce 15-second stings for broadcast. The competition attracted 250 entries, which were narrowed down to six finalists by a panel of judges that included Camilla Deakin, Ruth Fielding and Dave Buonaguidi from C4 as well as Phil Davies from Creative Film Productions.
Fielding said: 'This competition gives us a tremendous opportunity to hand-pick the hottest new talent from animation courses across the country. This is one way in which we can ensure we remain at the cutting edge.'
The winners were:
Rocio Cangas-Martinez from Edinburgh College of Art for Circles & Squares;
Cameron Duguid from Edinburgh College of Art for Curly Photos;
David McCue of Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art for Watery Light and Colours;
David Webb of North East Wales School of Art & Design for Digital Retro;
Simon Clark of Surrey Institute of Art & Design for Spinning TVs;
David Hall of Surrey Institute of Art & Design for Cow TV.
The stings will be broadcast on C4 later this year.
