Sorry but it looks more like a Vanity Award than a genuine attempt of promotion of Animation Festival!

And for the public, the tickets price ranges from $10 to $40 (Tickets for FLANIMATION FILM FEST - FilmFreeway)

I understand that everyone has the right to organize events in a commercial goal but please respect the creators and don’t use scammers techniques.

See for example “Synfig Studio 2D Animation Hackathon” (https://hackathon.fossee.in/synfig)
