With India becoming an important centre for animation production, it is natural that Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industry has now FICCI-BAF awards.

It is to recognise best talents in the animation industry.

Tapaas Chakravarti, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of DQ Entertainment Limited, has recently been chosen as the winner of one of the awards for 2008 for his contribution to the animation industry.

For the last nine years, Chakravarti has been doing animation work for telly series, movies, games and video projects.

Besides Indian productions, some of the foreign series with animation work from Chakravarti’s studio include Toddworld, Tutenstein and Curious George.
