Supernova’s Competition program is the focal point of the annual festival, boasting significant cash prize awards determined by special guest jurors who represent the vanguard of the digital motion art and animation community. Through the competition program, Denver Digerati seeks to showcase artists as animators, leveraging tools and working methods that defy all perceptions behind their creations. Works selected for the competition are considered for a variety of reasons including: artistry, ambition, boldness, intrigue, resonance and even career development. The competition adheres to no specific genre, but simply represents some of the best of all submissions that showcase the strengths and instincts inherent in the medium, with a particular eye on experimentation. The guest jurors selected to determine this year’s competition cash prize awards are Sine Ozbilge, Stefan Larsson / aka Aujik, and Snow Yunxue Fu, all who have been featured in Supernova programs between 2016 and 2020.

The 2021 competition program will be shown in three hour long segments for the first time this year, due to the varying length of animations selected and the opportunity for viewers to appreciate the offerings in depth over the course of a week.
