I was delighted to hear that Bing got nominated in Annecy, one of the most prestigious animation festivals in the world. Episode 'Bye Bye' was in competition in the 'TV film' category.
Annecy has always been a bit of an animation 'home from home' to me, so I didn't need a lot of convincing to visit this beautiful town again for the award ceremony.
Sadly we didn't win first prize, but the fact that this show has been considered amongst the cream of the crop, and allowed me to see a Bing episode on a cinema screen for the first time, has been absolutely amazing. Hopefully there will be many returns to Annecy!
