The Kuandu International Animation Festival (KDIAF) was established in 2011 and is currently one of the most important animation film festivals in Taipei. It is organized by the Taipei National University of the Arts, surrounded by the Kuandu Plain, a landscape rich in culture, arts and humanities.

The festival is a non-profit event with an aim to establish an international exchange platform for animation enthusiasts. In order to cultivate an international perspective, hundreds of outstanding international animation films are selected through contests to expand international cultural exchanges. Like in previous occasions, this year the KDIAF will continue to hold the following activities: international master lectures, animation industry lectures, animation workshops, animation camps for children and creative art marketplaces. We hope the exchanges within the activities will provide fresh impetus to animation creation and the digital culture industry in Taiwan.

This Competition will be held for the 4th Kuandu International Animation Festival (KDIAF) in 2014 to provide animators a platform to screen and promote their works. The Festival not only injects new energy into the animation industry, it also promotes interaction between local and international participants.

The KuanDog Prize was created in 2013 in order to encourage submissions from excellent animators and filmmakers. KDIAF also offers screening programs for outstanding animated films in different categories selected from all over the world. Every year we have around 10,000 attendants in our events.

The Kuandu International Animation Festival not only showcases animation films that have an essential influence in Taiwan, it also effectively promotes animated arts within the annual activities of Kuandu Arts Festival held by the Taipei National University of Arts (TNUA), growing and learning through interacting with other wonderful art events.
