The competition is hosted on Kdan Mobile’s Animation Desk and submissions are open to all aspiring animators.
Prizes include the Wacom Cintiq 13HD 13.3” Creative Pen & Touch Display, GoPro HERO4 Black 4K Action Camera, and Wacom Intuos pro Special Edition.
Nicknamed “The Living Light Box”, Animation Desk requires its participants to animate a short story that makes use of two key frames featuring a simple box. Participants in the competition can choose their preferred frame rate as long as the beginning and final frames contain the required elements.
This year iAniMagic has added a dedicated section of prizes to an audience favorite’s category.
An Animation Desk spokesperson offered these tips for entries:
Longer isn’t always better. Use your unlimited frames to create smoother animations, but keep in mind the ten second limit maximum.
Create a story and bring the audience into it. The beauty of the box is that imagination can create anything.
The judging period is scheduled for 7 December 2015 to 25 January 2016.
Competition winners will be announced on 29 January 2016.
