New World Classic
Animation Award


The winner of this year's
'New World Classic Animation Award' is

FLOWER DUET by Haemin Ko.

We are very happy to present our first award to this outstanding artist.

'Flower Duet' by Haemin Ko has realized the mood of the given song very aesthetically.

Film composer Yin Lu also managed to perfectly integrate the main theme of Leo Delibes Song 'Flower Duet' into the soundtrack.

We are pleased to present the 'New World Classic Animation Award' to Haemin Ko, as image and sound create a beautiful symbiosis and perfectly underline the drama of the fading.

As a counterpoint, we would like to give a 'Special Mention' to the short film 'Abudabude' by Kim Ngyuen. Naïve animation meets classical music, as well as not quite adult content. This entertains and provokes in equal parts. Ameba copulations in Tchaikovsky's 'Nutcracker' rhythm, including the inevitable climax...definitely worth a mention.
