In Beijing, the 9th Animation Academy Awards of China was held last weekend. Now we look at some of the honored productions.

Among the top winners are Moon Goddess for Best Visual Effects, Wind From Cypress Hills for Experimental Visuals, and Big Watermelon for Best Technique.

Distinguished for their bold imagination, exquisite production, and distinctive style, these works were all composed by undergraduates still in college.

The Animation Academy Awards were created to encourage originality, innovation and initiative among China's young animators. This year, more than 100 institutions took part, contributing more than five hundreds works.

The Best Director honor went to Huang Jianle, a student from the Beijing Film Institute. His work titled Chicken Perched on the Tree was inspired by a childhood experience.

Huang Jianle, winner, best director, said, "After graduation I want to set up my own business. I will work in animation. I hope to build a remarkable studio like Pixar."

The Animation Academy Awards were launched in 2001, and have been held annually since then. It is regarded as a platform for China's young aspiring animators.
