​THE KLIK AWARDS 2017 - a.k.a. The Frankies

Who will go for the gold? This year, we got 1.975 entries representing 80 countries, from Iceland to India, but only a chosen few convinced our three independent juries of (inter)national experts and became KLIK champions of 2017.

The winner can expect everlasting glory and (minor) riches to invest in future films. During our Awards Night on Saturday 21 October 2017, champions took home their very own coveted Frankie – a sculpture of our awards mascot and a symbol of ultimate animation achievement.
