Here are The Motion Awards 2023 Nominees!

The end of the year is always a whirlwind, isn’t it?

With deadlines nipping at our heels, forgotten presents waiting to be scooped up at the last minute, and an overabundance of Christmas dinners (is there such a thing as too much pie?), it’s a wonder we get anything done!

Here at Motionographer, we’re riding the same festive rollercoaster. But one thing’s for sure: we wouldn’t dream of wrapping up the year without drumming up excitement for The Motion Awards 2023!

Imagine us, over the past few months, like elves in a workshop, but instead of toys, we’ve been meticulously sorting through a treasure trove of entries – hundreds of the world’s most jaw-droppingly innovative and groundbreaking submissions, spread across 15 areas and 38 categories.

The time has come to roll out the red carpet and unveil this year’s show-stoppers, the finalists of The Motion Awards 2023!

If the past few years have been a rollercoaster, 2023 was the loop-de-loop. Amid a whirlwind of political and social changes, our creative community has not just adapted but soared, turning challenges into awe-inspiring art. From the ‘pre-‘ to ‘post-pandemic’ world, riding the waves of the ‘new normal’, this year’s submissions are a testament to unbridled creativity.

We’ve seen it all – from commercials that make you sit up in your seat to sound designs that resonate deep in your soul, interactive installations that whisk you to other worlds, and gaming promos that get your heart racing. It’s clear that in the realm of Motion Design, we’re just getting started!

So, as we do every year (but with an extra dash of sparkle), we’re super thrilled to share this year’s nominees with you. Dive in, be dazzled, and stay on the edge of your seats.

In just a few weeks, we’ll be announcing the winners of The Motion Awards 2023 – and trust us, we’re planning to kick off the new year with a bang that’ll make even the fireworks jealous!

Wishing you a happy, healthy holidays and a spectacular New Year!
