Submission: You can simply upload your submission at Then you will have to fill up your application through eventbrite and provide us Syncsketch link to your creation.

Animators can choose to do a fully body-mechanics shot, or a fully acting shot, or a mix of both. Animators can choose existing audio from any medium or record audio themselves.

Animators may add environment and props to their shots, but the quality of those props sets will not influence the final decision for the winner. We want animators to focus on the animation and use whatever they want to add to their shots as far as it is not offensive or illegal.

Animations will be judged by: Quality, Originality, Idea, Appeal, Acting, Body-MechanicsAnimations will not be judged by: Length (as long as it’s inside the 5-15 second). Render or any other addition to the shot (other departments work) besides animation. Playblasts are just as fine as fully rendered shots. Only the animation will be under scrutiny.

Good luck! We are excited to see your creations!
