#CFMAnimatch 2019 is the first 2D animation competition organized by the Communications and Multimedia Consumer Forum of Malaysia (CFM) to create creative animation videos to deliver messages of issues faced by consumers in the communications and multimedia also to find creative talents in the field of animation.
The CFM Animatch competition is one of CFM’s initiatives in engaging the public for a better understanding of the role of CFM that facilitates consumers and cultivate self-regulation practice.
#CFManimatch participation is open to the public (Malaysian only) last February and received 126 participations from university students and animation experts. Out of all the participants, 20 participants were chosen to the second stage and 10 finalists were chosen to the final stage. 10 finalists were chosen by the panel of judges through a review session and get to be mentored for four consecutive weeks to complete their animation videos before the final selection.
