The October Pylon Animation Contest
Oct 01, 2018

October Contest Theme

This month's theme is "hidden entrance." Does a secret passage lead to a secret lair? What about a maze or puzzle? A hidden entrance could even lead to other hidden entrances. Who made this entrance? As long as you animate something about a hidden entrance, it's up to you!

October Contest Awards

The top 3 winners will receive a complimentary limited edition T-Shirt created specifically for this contest! In addition, the top 3 winners will receive a portion of that month's T-Shirt sales. The first place winner receives $2 per shirt sold, and the second and third place winners each receive $1 per shirt sold! There is no limit to how many shirts can be sold, just the time limit. (Shirts can only be bought during this specified period of time.)

Buy the shirt!
