Depending on the style of the winner, they will work with the appropriate Animator or Animators and depending on how good the winner is will decide whether they get on an official release. Alan Newman of The Animators who is a producer and also manager of the collective has said that depending on the talent level of entries, the winner could be taken on board by him as a solo artist under his own management which will involve gigs, radio spins etc. The winner will be chosen by The Animators as a group.

The kind of support and attention The Animators are receiving and with Alan Newman pushing things in the right direction, there is no doubt that anyone serious in this industry and trying to break in at any level should throw themselves at this massive opportunity.
