Games and Animation Competitions

Teams from each school will get the chance to create their own computer game or to write, direct and animate their own unique stop-frame adventure.

There are two categories, Juniors (P6 to P7) for the Animation competition and Seniors (S1 to S2) for the Games competition.  

Juniors P6 to P7

Working in teams, you will have just 4 1/2 hours to create an original short stop-frame animation using ZU3D animation software.  Teams will have access to workstations containing art supplies, iPads and Android tablets.  You are welcome to bring your own equipment or props, but not pre-prepared artwork or creations.  Each team will also have an experienced mentor on hand to help and support.
