The May Pylon Animation Contest
May 01, 2019

May Contest Theme

This month's theme is "Sand Racing." Is this race at a beach or desert? Who are the people racing? Are they professional bikers, car racers, or animals on toy cars? What about sledding down a sandy hill? Whatever you can imagine and animate, create your hilarious animation with this month's theme PLUS this month's secret ingredient, then enter!

May Secret Ingredient

Every month we have a new secret ingredient that is required to be included in your entry. This month we have a pattern texture. You can incorporate it anyway you wish. You can change the color of the pattern, you can use it as a displacement map, use it as a glossy mask, etc. As long as you include it somewhere in your animation, then you're set!

May Contest Awards

The top 3 winning entries will be uploaded to our YouTube account. And 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!
