Next to the festival's Hivos Tiger Awards Competition, the short films have their own competition: the Tiger Awards Competition for Short Films. The big difference with the Tiger Awards Competition is that this shorts competition is not just for young and upcoming talents; all filmmakers get a chance to win an award.
In this competition, three equal Canon Tiger Awards for Short Films are awarded with prizes of €3.000 plus video cameras. In addition, out of the 23 nominees, the jury selects the IFFR nomination for the short film category of the European Film Awards (EFA). This selected film will be rewarded with a Canon video camera, and is in the running for the European Film Award for Short Film 2013, whose winner will be announced in December 2013.
The winners and the EFA nominee will be announced on Monday evening 28 January 21:00 hrs in WORM, Rotterdam. The ceremony has free admission.
