The 3D movie Special Deeds for Special Needs has won the top prize in the Animation and Puppetry category at the All India Children''s Educational Audio Video Festival (AICEAVF).
The winning entry was submitted by Tata Interactive Systems, a learning solutions company, and the award was presented at a ceremony on March 6 in New Delhi.
"Special Deeds for Special Needs was the shortest film amongst the entries," says Manisha Mohan, head of Design and Animation at Tata. "We are delighted at the recognition received by our recently set up 3D animation studio."
Tata produced the animated movie for the company''s corporate sustainability event, The Tata Interactive Learning Disability Forum (TLDF) in 2008.

AICEAVF is the second accolade awarded for the film. Earlier this year, it also won the top top prize at the FICCI Best Animated Frames Awards 2009 in the Animated Film on Social Welfare category.
The AICEAVF is organized by the Central Institute of Educational Technology to honor creative producers who contribute to the field of education through audio and video programs.
