Nickelodeon and national non-profit Get Schooled (co-founded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and Viacom) are giving one skilled, innovative young animator the chance to win a $25,000 scholarship through the inaugural “What’s Your Nickfluence?” Animation Challenge. The open call for original animated shorts is running through September 14, 2015.
“What’s Your Nickfluence” is a global short film competition which gives eligible participants the opportunity to create and submit an original three-minute animated short (no longer than three minutes) inspired by the Nick legacy that celebrates Nickelodeons past and present shows and brand, and how these influence the filmmaker’s art, childhood and life.
The scholarship prize is open to 17-24 year-old college students. (High school students ages 13-17 are also invited to submit a short in any format for the chance to win a Wacom Cintiq 13HD Interactive Pen Display and a one-year subscription for Adobe Creative Cloud.) Following the entry period, a panel of judges will select finalists to be announced in November. Fans can vote for a “People’s Choice” winner at GetSchooled.com between Sept. 28 and Nov. 15.
