The Humpty Project: Animate to Win an iPad mini 2!

by Megan -

Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall. Humpty Dumpty won an iPad that’s small! Want to win an iPad mini 2? Our friends the Animation Chefs are giving one away! Just follow these simple steps to enter:

1. Subscribe to Animation Chefs. All you need to do is submit your name and email, and you’ll be on your way to joining all of the exclusive animation fun!

2. After you’ve subscribed, head on over to the members area and watch the short video (also above) to download the cutout template of Humpty Dumpty.

3. Now it’s your turn to create! Use your Humpty Dumpty cutout to make your own short animated film. Seem a bit daunting? Don’t worry … they’re only looking for a 5-15 second movie!

4. Then send the link to your film over to the Animation Chefs, and they’ll toss your name into their Pot-O-Problems. In their next episode, they’ll draw a name from the pot; that person will receive a brand new iPad mini 2!

You must be 18 years or older to enter. Teachers, parents and media mentors: help your young animators win by entering on their behalf. Hurry to enter, though, because the contest ends on December third! Keep in mind, this is not a competition, it's a contest - so everyone has an equal chance at winning.

Best of luck to all of you aspiring animators out there! And don’t forget, iStopMotion is a great way to create stop motion animations. You can even download a FREE trial version of the software (just click "download") to get started! As the Chefs would say, Bon Animate!
