Enter now! The timer has started! This is your chance to show off your animation skills. The Pylon Animation Contest is open to any animator in any country. Each contest has a unique theme and a deadline, so get started right away. The top 10 winners are announced on the last day of the month. Push your skills and show the world what you have. You may win some great awards as well! Read this month's theme below and start animating!

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!
