All the winners of the first Ibero-American Animation Quirino Awards.

Twenty four productions, coming from nine Ibero-American countries (Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, Mexico, Peru, Spain and Uruguay)  were competing for the 9  statuettes of this first edition  of Ibero-American Animation Quirino Awards.

In retrospect, the premier Quirino Awards seemed like an easy auteurish job to win, at least in the main categories:

The meta-narrative, graphic-format style of Decorado by Alberto Vázquez won Best Ibero-American Animation Short Film, whereas Juan Pablo Zaramella won (Best Ibero-American series)  for his The Tiniest Man in the World.

The Argentinian Tantalus (by Juan Facundo Ayerbe & Christian Krieghoff, Universidad de Buenos Aires) won Best School Film.

In the feature film category, the Mexican Ana and Bruno (dir. Carlos Carrera, here's the trailer beat out the Spanish hit Tadeo Jones: The Lost Explorer and the Secret of King Midas. The Enrique Gato & David Alonso-directed film won the award for Best Sound Design and Original Music.

However, the surprise here is the short film from Brazil Way of Giants (dir. Alois Di Leo, produced by Sinlogo Animation) with two nominations (best animation design - best sound design and music);

Fernanda Frick from Chile won the  Best Visual Development of Ibero-American Animation Work for Here's the Plan  (produced by María José Barros)
