hp-and-cartoon-networkWatching cartoons and playing with their toys is the most favorite hobby of children during their childhood. Few days back, HP and Cartoon Network joined their hands for “The Toon Creator Awards “. The basic purpose and mission of this “Toon Creator Awards” was to promote self-expression and inspire creativity amongst young children in a new fun and exciting way. This was an online animation contest competition that is open to both schools and individuals; it encourages children from across Asia Pacific to showcase their creativity through cutting-edge technology. The age limit for this contest was 6-14 years old and animators participated from different countries such as Australia, India, Taiwan, Thailand, Malaysia, Philippines and Pakistan. The young animators created and directed their very own short animated clips, featuring characters from the popular series ‘Ben 10: Alien Force’, ‘Chowder’ and ‘The Powerpuff Girls’.

In this year’s contest, HP and Cartoon Network included many new things like the character creator function, allowing kids to build personalized avatars to participate in exciting adventures and have a leading role in their own animations. Yesterday, HP and Cartoon Network announced the winners of the Toon Creator Awards 2010. There were over 160,000 animations created by kids across the Asia Pacific Region and the organizers selected the best one from each country (mentioned earlier).
