DOK Leipzig, the International Leipzig Festival for Documentary and Animated Film, is unveiling a new award to recognize animated documentary.

Beginning this year, the €3,000 Golden Animadoc Dove award will be presented to the film that “combines elements of documentary and animated film in an imaginative, creative and artistically independent way,” according to the German film fest.

Organizers say the new award builds on the event’s mission to recognize the best in documentary and animated film, and is an outgrowth of the fest’s “Animadoc” section, which, for the past 17 years, has spotlighted the hybrid film form.

Nominees for the new award will be chosen from the selection committee’s official list of film entries for documentary and animated film, and may be featured across sections in one of the five competitions as well as in the International or Animadoc programs.

Film submissions for the upcoming edition of DOK Leipzig are being accepted until July 10, 2013, with more information to be found at the event’s official website.

The festival runs from October 28 to November 3.
