The Federation of WWOOF Organisations (FoWO) has just announced the winner of the WWOOF Animation Movie.

The winner is Haylee Powers, a young woman from the United States. She is an Emmy award-winning designer from Denver creating compelling brands and teaching brand workshops. She loves travelling and she is very interested in WWOOFing. Actually she is planning to go wwoofing in Japan or in Italy in the near future.

An international contest has recently been arranged by worldwide WWOOF organizations in order to create a short animation movie promoting WWOOF movement. The main goal was to inform people what WWOOF really is about. It was an open contest where only one proposal was supposed to win the award. 19 proposals have arrived from all over the world and a panel of eight national WWOOF organisations chose the most appropriate one.

Music for the animation “Happy Whistle” is done by Scott Holmes.

A WWOOF team worked alongside Haylee providing her a good script and choosing a mix of voices (both male and female, with different accents). A few drafts were produced and evaluated and the actual version was considered the most suitable, as the nice combination of watercolors and photos assures a right representation of the diversity in the WWOOF world.

And finally, here is Haylee’s work – the WWOOF Animation Movie – we hope you’ll find it useful before your next WWOOFing adventure worldwide!

If you want to help to spread the word about WWOOFs philosophy you can share this film on Facebook:
