“What’s Your Nickfluence?” Animation Challenge for $25,000 scholarship
Nickelodeon and Get Schooled are giving one skilled and innovative young animator the chance to win a $25,000 scholarship through the inaugural “What’s Your Nickfluence?” Animation Challenge.
“What’s Your Nickfluence?” Animation Challenge is a global short film competition which gives eligible participants the opportunity to create an original, Nick-inspired short film – no longer than three (3) minutes – that celebrates Nickelodeon’s past and present shows and brand, and how these influenced the applicant’s art, childhood and life.
The open call for original animated shorts is open now through Sept. 14, 2015, and marks the first-ever animation scholarship program between the two organizations, which will help elevate and support the brightest up and coming animators by giving them an opportunity to submit their story.
The scholarship opportunity is open to 17-24 year-old college students in which applicants will be required to submit an animated short in any format.
Since talent can be found across all age ranges, 13-17 year-old high school students are also invited to submit a short in any format for the chance to win a Wacom Cintiq 13HD Interactive Pen Display, along with a one year subscription for Adobe Creative Cloud services.
All applicants must submit their entries in accordance with the submission process, comply with all official rules, and provide satisfactory verification of age and school status.
