Each year APW is fortunate to have a visiting pro act as a Character Design Contest special guest judge to look at all of the character designs submitted by young aspiring designers and choose the winners.  Our 2020 judge is Toronto layout artist Sarah Jargstorf.

Sarah’s work in Pre-Visualization and Layout for animated films and television shows brings together her extensive experience in animation, storyboarding, modelling and rigging.  For Sarah her humble beginnings also included a stop at Animation Portfolio Workshop before moving on to Sheridan animation and beyond.


As a graduate of both Sheridan’s Classical Animation and Computer Animation programs I have a strong foundation in the classical discipline and diligently apply these principles to the digital art form.
