The Cartoon d'Or rewards each year the best European animation short among the prize-winning films from the major European festivals.
The jury selects 5 finalists and the winner is announced during the Cartoon Forum, the co-production forum for animated TV series. The 2012 Award Ceremony took place on 13th September 2012 in Toulouse in the presence of French director Michel Ocelot.
And the 2012 winner is… "Oh Willy…" by Emma De Swaef & Marc James Roels.
