The awarding ceremony of the International Festival of Scientific Cartoons "Cartoon Science" ("Mult Nauka") was held at the RUSSIA EXPO. The winners were named in three nominations: "The Most Educational Cartoon about Science", "The Most Inspiring Cartoon about Science", "The Best Image of a Scientist Embodied in a Cartoon". The jury considered 362 applications from more than 60 countries, 40 best works were selected for the show.

The International Festival of Scientific Cartoons "Cartoon Science" ("Mult Nauka") was held at the Exposition from March 29 to 31. The guests of Pavilion No. 19 ATOM were welcomed with fascinating animated films from all over the world, educational lectures, masterclasses by professional animators, an exposition about the history of technologies in animation, VR-cinema and a festive cartoon concert.

The festival program included the best educational cartoons from famous international projects and leading Russian studios. The audience could see both festival works devoted to different sciences - from physics to philosophy, and long-loved characters from "Fixies", "Kikoriki" ("Smeshariki") and "Umka". Also, a collection of rare cartoons from the animation historian Georgy Borodin - "Animation Futurology: Look from the USSR" - was prepared for the guests of the festival.

"The festival lasted only three days, but it was very intense. During this period we had time to show the most interesting scientific cartoons, to communicate with guests-educators, with representatives of the animation industry, had time to work on masterclasses and demonstrated VR-program. Also, guests of the Pavilion could see interesting things related to the history of animation and cinematography. All this would not have been possible without the ATOM Foundation for Assistance to the Development of Scientific, Educational and Communication Initiatives. We thank the Foundation for this opportunity," said Dmitry Shlepnev, the festival's producer.

Maria Uvarova, CEO of the Foundation for Assistance to the Development of Scientific, Educational and Communication Initiatives ATOM, drew attention to the fact that the festival enjoyed popularity among the guests of the Exposition.

"I would like to thank the partners in organizing this festival, cartoonists from more than 60 countries who sent us their works, and, of course, the guests who came to us. For three days cartoon screenings alone were attended by about three thousand people. I hope that in the future we will make this festival a regular event. I think it is great when it is possible to "marry" such seemingly distant things as animation and popularization of science. And it is very pleasant that the festival attracted so many young visitors, among whom there were probably future scientists," emphasized Maria Uvarova.
