Animation Magazine The first and the only internationally distributed, print and digital industry trade magazine, dedicated solely to the industry, artists, schools, festivals, events and support of animation and VFX.

The print magazine is published 10 times a year in the United States, and features articles on current animated movies, short animated films, animated television series, new media, visual effects, interactive design of titles and software releases from different studios and independent producers. Editorial covers all forms of animation; 2D animation, 3D for animation and visual effects, or stop-motion, and the profiles of the artists and executives behind the productions. A digital version of the print editions was created in 2006. A daily week-day news-letter is distributed around the world each morning along with all day long coverage going out to more than 125,000 Facebook and social media subscribers.


Daily animation news is updated every weekday on the publication's website. The site is also home to World Animation Celebration Online (WAC-O),[1] an online film festival featuring animated shorts from around the world. Films are free to view. Also featured on the site is AniMagTV, a portal dedicated to brief reports on animation events, shorts and trailers.


Animation Magazine hosts two events each year, The World Animation and VFX Summit, at the California Yacht Club in Marina del Rey and the World Animation Celebration in Culver City. Details on both events can be found on
