Irish animation company Boulder Media will return as sponsors for the Animation of the Year award at this years National Student Media awards!

The company was established in 2000 and since then has gone on to become one of Ireland’s largest animation studios, attracting high profile projects and working with leading broadcasters across the globe.

Ireland’s recent success in such a rapidly developing and expanding industry is no-better illustrated than by the success of a company like Boulder Media. They have been nominated for some of the most prestigious awards across the world including multiple BAFTAS and EMMYS.

This is a far cry from just a decade ago when there were fewer than 100 people employed across the entire animation sector. Thanks to companies such as Boulder Media, this industry is now worth over 100 million euro to the Irish economy.

Boulder Media is a fitting sponsor to this category because they have grown tenfold over the last 18 years and so have the experience to recognise young, up and coming talented animators in Ireland!
