OCAD University received recognition in both the professional and student categories of the American Illustration-American Photography International Motion Art Awards.

Jon Todd, an OCAD U assistant professor in Illustration, won in the Animation – Illustration category for a stop motion animation called I am me created for McGill University Mental Health Service.

McGill University approached the animation studio Thought Café to create a video based on a series of monologues and poems written and recorded by students affected with mental health issues. The studio collaborated with Jon Todd to paint a portrait of the student with visual elements to colour her monologue. The goal of the project is to spread mental health awareness and education.

Third-year Illustration student Andrea Heisz received a student award for her gif, Rube Goldberg Machine Created by Unfortunate Mishaps.

This is the fourth edition of the International Motion Art Awards, which celebrate photographers, illustrators and designers who make their work move in all media.
