The TELUS STORYHIVE animation shorts winners have just been announced.

Soggy Flakes (pictured) from directors The Affolter Bros. and S.O.S. from director Denver Jackson won the top awards. They’re both from British Columbia.

Soggy Flakes follows a group of out-of-work breakfast cereal mascots who form a support group to lament the golden ages of yesteryear and figure out how to swallow the bitter taste of reality.

In S.O.S., Aria receives an SOS from her long-lost mother and travels to the farthest edge of space to unlock the mystery of the ship known as Somnius to find her.

Each winner receives customized career training and attendance at the 2017 Ottawa Animation Festival.

STORYHIVE is a community-powered funding program that allows members of the community to influence what projects will receive funding from TELUS.

The program allows content creators in British Columbia and Alberta to submit their story ideas to an online public platform. The community then votes for the project that should receive funding and go into production.

NSI delivers training for the selected projects and their creators once they’re chosen through the STORYHIVE process.
