Shorts should include strong characters that appeal to both boys and girls.

Shorts should avoid stereotyping of any kind.

Shorts should be respectful of preschooler's development, gearing humor and content to the audience.

Shorts should be visually stimulating and push the conventions of design while working on a level respectful of preschooler's development.

Shorts should avoid topics and issues that date and link the series to a particular time and fad.

Shorts should have no more than 2 – 3 characters.

Shorts are limited to 2:00 in length and should primarily take place in 1 setting.

We are open to all animation styles.
