The animated cartoon from Yamal «The Arctic rescuers» received the prize of the international ecological TV festival «To Save and To Preserve» in Khanty-Mansiysk.
The animation film was awarded with the diploma «For original view on ecological problems» and the special prize – a digital photo-camera.
The series for children «The Arctic rescuers» include the first 4 episodes: «Myniku is rescuing the Polar Bear», «Yamal Iri is rescuing Taiku the Traveler», «The Bear is rescuing the Laika» and «Khorki is rescuing Myniku».
By the information given by the head of the association of animated films «Myniku» Mikhail Korobov, this is the first festival award for the series «The Arctic rescuers». In total young animators and their teachers plan to make 13 episodes – according to the number of months in the ecological calendar of northern aborigines. Work on two new episodes is being completed. Their first performance will take place in the beginning of July on the Russian festival of animation films «Zhar-Ptitsa» (The Firebird), which will take place in Novosibirsk. Inhabitants of Salekhard will be able to see new episodes of «The Arctic rescuers» in autumn during the traditional Day of Animated Cartoons in Yamal.
(The note: Myniku is a mute bird-man and the spirit of the song of the North. In translation from the language of forest Nenets people «Taiku» means «a box made of birch bark». Taiku the Traveler is a little man, who looks like such box. The Laika is a Husky dog. Yamal Iri is similar to Santa Clause. He is Grandfather Frost in Yamal. Khorki is a male partridge.)
