The contest is over! Check out the playlist of entries here. (There are two non-YouTube entries as well. Links found in the description of the playlist).


Welcome to the EASTER 2019 Contest From 2011 to 2015, EASTER was an annual contest to celebrate spring and the spirit of Easter by spending two weeks holed up in a dark room animating! But sadly there was a four year hiatus between the last EASTER and now.... but here we are in 2019 with yet another EASTER Contest! And this time, EASTER is an official Bricks in Motion contest.

But this is no mere reboot of the EASTER contest. This is the ultimate TRANSCENDENTAL EASTER 2019. Let's all do our best to make this the best EASTER yet. Let it transcend all past EASTERs! (Too much? Ok, I'll stop)

Deadline

The deadline for this contest is April 20th, 2019 at 11:59pm (midnight) EDT. You can see the countdown timer and convert to your time zone here. This means you have a full two weeks to create your entry.

Rules

  1. You entry must be Easter related in some way. However, it does not have to be religious (unless of course you want it to be). However, try to think outside of the box with your film. There are so many things to do with this theme; I want you to be as creative as possible.

  2. Films must be primarily stop-motion animation using LEGO bricks or some other LEGO-like construction toy. Films may feature other forms of animation (like Flash, 3D animation, etc), but LEGO stop-motion needs to be the main focus. (This means that clay bunnies and chocolate eggs cannot be the focus of animation.)

  3. Entries cannot exceed 20 seconds. This means you have to cram animation, titles, and credits into a 20 second video. (Though, titles and credits are not required.)

  4. Copyrighted material (music, themes, etc) are allowed, but originality is strongly recommended.

  5. The film may not contain any mature/explicit content. This includes, but is not limited to: swearing, excessive/gory violence, overt sexual content, and blatant drug references. However, slapstick comedy is allowed.

  6. Only one entry per person will be accepted. If you submit more than one entry, only the last entry will be considered.

  7. Entries must contain the EASTER 2019 image or the text “Made for EASTER 2019” somewhere in the film. Logo Link (If you want, you can include the Bricks in Motion logo, but this is not a requirement)

   

Submission

Videos must be uploaded to the internet to submit. You can submit videos to YouTube, Vimeo, DailyMotion, Flickr, or other video sharing sites. To submit your entry, please send the link to your video to me either in a email (recommended!) or through a forum Private Message. Do not post links to your entries in this topic.

Entries may be public or unlisted when submitted.

Judging

The judges this year will be as follows:
Rioforce
Penta
Pritchard Studios

Films will be judged based on Originality, Production (animation, cinematography, sound, etc.), and Story. However, the films will be judged primarily as a whole. The whole is always greater than the sum of the parts!

Re: EASTER 2019 Contest Starts NOW!

Very exciting, can't wait to see the content created from this competition!

Any particular reason for the 20 second limit?

Yes, it's homemade, fresh from the toaster oven.

Re: EASTER 2019 Contest Starts NOW!

Just to be sure... facebook and Instagram are ok too? To publish the video on

Fun contest!

Is it possible to get the new BiM logo too?

As Brickman said, you do not need mod elements! Only include the words "Made for EASTER 2019" or the EASTER 2019 logo (linked in the topic post) somewhere in your film and you're good!

In previous years, we had a 15 second time limit, but in 2015 I bumped it up to 20. It's mainly just to challenge you creatively, but since the contest is only 2 weeks, it makes the challenge seem a lot more manageable to entrants.

While Youtube or Vimeo are preferred, Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter will work as well, as long as the video is public at the end of the contest.

And yes, I've updated the topic post to include a link to the new Bricks in Motion logo (as seen in the stickers) if you'd like to add that in your film! (Of course, this is NOT a requirement mini/wink )

Re: EASTER 2019 Contest Starts NOW!

This seems pretty fun! I don't think I'm gonna be able to enter this one, but limiting the entries to 20 seconds is pretty smart, the entries will definitely be very entertaining mini/smile

4/20-second thac

Re: EASTER 2019 Contest Starts NOW!

If I put the Easter logo in my video does it count as part of the twenty seconds?

Re: EASTER 2019 Contest Starts NOW!

Yes. The entire length of the film has to be 20 seconds, not just the animation

Re: EASTER 2019 Contest Starts NOW!

A subject line isnt important, but since it's required for BiM, just put "EASTER 2019, [username]" and send the link in the message. mini/smile
