Next to the festival's Tiger Awards Competition the short films have their own competition: the Tiger Awards Competition for Short Films. Which last year contained 21 candidates. What differentiates this competition from the Tiger Awards Competition is the fact that it's not just for young and upcoming talents; all filmmakers have a chance at winning.
