The December Pylon Animation Contest
Dec 01, 2018

December Contest Theme

This month's theme is "tree chopping." What is the purpose of chopping down a tree? Will you cut down an evergreen for a Christmas tree? Maybe you'll animate a character surviving in the woods and they need a fire. What about using the wood to create a house? As long as you animate something about a chopped tree, it's up to you!

December 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!
