The TOFA winner has been announced and that winner is DaveBruno!

Here are his tournament entries, starting from the open round all the way to the final:

Congrats, Dave!

Check out the TOFA collection to see how the rest went down.

Roger Barr from I-Mockery is going on tour with Keith Apicary - check it out.

If you like making music and enjoyed Symphonic Tower Defense, the September Audio Contest is your chance to have a song featured in the game!

Don't forget to animate a dying clown by this Friday at noon EST.

Up next: Best of August! Madness Day is September 22nd.


This is the game JohnnyUtah and I have been working on.

I saw most of those movies, and they were a real treat for something animated in such a short time! Congrats are in order!

way to go dave! all your animations are great!

i hope for the next tofa competition, the animators are seeded such that the best ones don't get pitted against eachother in the earliest rounds. i'd love to see more animation come out of a couple of the contestants that lost early on.


the events are merely fictional, written, directed, and acted out by all who create them

Congratz to Dave! I really liked all his entries but The Shape of Love blew me away, definitely his best.

The Shape of love was ...it was awesome! Super charming.

It also made me smile in the end! I love it!

Thank you TOFA for the opportunity to motivate!

Good job Dave Bruno!


I hope your day will be as bright as the sun!

We already know no one ever pays you any attention or sends you a PM. You don't need to go trolling for people to send you a message. It's pretty pathetic.

I remember watching The Shape of Love when it first entered the portal and thinking about how great it was. I actually didn't even notice that it was in a tournament. I haven't seen every entry for TOFA 2011 but I'm sure it'd be really tough for anyone to beat The Shape of Love. It was truly a great flash movie. :3
Congrats to Dave Bruno. I hope he continues to submit more things to Newgrounds.

Yeah I've been bummed about jagondudo's early departure - I think he would have been a really strong contender throughout.

We're expecting big things for next year, with more publicity and a new name, since that other site decided to keep using the name TOFA even though NitWitt created it and chose to bring it over to NG.
