Watch: Finalists in Amnesty International animation contest

A scene from Nei, the winning entry in Amnesty's Stop Violence and Torture Contest.

Thai animators took part in Amnesty International's Stop Violence and Torture Animation Contest.

Organized in collaboration with Sputnik Tales Studio, the five finalist entries were screened last week at Bangkok's Lido theater, and the top prize of 50,000 baht went to Dusaya Opap for Nei, about a little girl who witnesses a man being framed for drugs and then beaten by a policeman.

All the animated shorts had to have something to do with "direct wrongdoings by government officials".

With various animation styles, the other four finalist entries were Goat in a Sketchbook, Judge, Watch and The Smith.

There's more about the contest in an article in The Nation today.

You can watch the five finalist animated shorts and vote on them for the popular award until February 25. One view on YouTube is equal to one point; one “like” on Facebook equals three points and one “share” on Facebook totals five points.

For more details, check Facebook.com/AmnestyThailand or the Sputnik Tales Studio YouTube channel.
