N.E.mation! 9 is Back Again!


It that time of the year again! Time for our young budding students to impress Singapore and the rest of the world with their animation skills.


N.E.mation! 9 [National Education (ani)mation?] is back for it's 9th year running, and this year promises to be another year of impressive and exciting competition between students, where the champions will win themselves a trip to a renowned animation studio in the USA! Check out the fun stuff that last year's winners got to do while they were there!




For those of you who have not heard of N.E.mation!, [which cave have you been hiding in for the past 9 years?], N.E.mation! is a digital animation competition organised by Nexus for youths to express their thoughts on Total Defence.


I had the privilege of being one of the official blogger ambassadors for last year's N.E.mation! 8, and it was a blast! I'm telling you these kids are soooooo talented.


Here's a shout-out to my awesome teams from N.E.mation! 8...

The girls from team Wayne Stark Co


and the guys from team Hashtag


With the guidance and training from the organisers and partners, these students with no prior experience in animation have been able to produce broadcast quality clips that were screened on free-to-air television! In fact, some of these clips were even selected for international animation festivals and even won several awards!


Check out last year's winning clip:





Each year, the animations are centered around a specific theme, and this year's theme is "Because We Believe".


So students from secondary schools, Junior Colleges and Centralised Institutions, get those creative juices flowing and head on down to the N.E.mation! 9 website to register with your team of 3 to 4 members, and you might just be the next team to visit USA! [Pssstt, I also heard that the consolation prizes were really good too]




But you gotta hurry, because registration closes on the 15 August 2014!! Good luck to all participating students and may the odds ever be in your favour!
