The 2010 China's West International Cartoon Culture Festival opened in Chongqing Municipal City on Sept. 29. At the opening ceremony, lots of Chinese beauties created a splendid cartoon feast for the eyes, wearing colorful costumes of cartoon figures, including transformers, lovely fairies and sexy soldiers.

Apart from those familiar cartoon figures, an electronic competition and performance brought into the festival for the first time became the biggest highlight of the event, and many video game masters were doing battle with local citizens in the virtual world.

In future activities of the festival, producer of "Famous Detective Kenan" is going to communicate with audiences face to face, bringing the cartoon series' props and manuscripts. Famous stars, including Zhou Bichang, A Xin, Black Leopard Band and Tang Dynasty Band, will also make an appearance.

According to the Organizing Committee, more than 240 companies, 300 cartoon teams and 3,000 competitors are joining in the five-day festival, and 12 Awards will be handed out during the event.

In recent years, Chongqing is trying to become the western "Capital of Cartoons" by developing its cartoon industry quickly. According to statistics, 12 full-length cartoons and a total of 5,267 minutes of animation were produced in the city, which was the highest among China's western cities and 19 percent higher than the domestic average level.
