[Advertorial] Sign Up For N.E. Mation! 8 and stand to win a trip to USA!

Oh boy, this brings back memories; I attended my very first N.E.mation event 3 years ago where I learnt how to make worm video…. met Trixy for the first time… and won a Canon S95 camera for my entry (which i'm still using for blogging now hehehe…)!

About N.E.mation! 8

N.E.mation! is a digital animation competition organised by Nexus for youths to express their thoughts on Total Defence. Into its eighth season this year, the competition has proven highly successful, with more than 9,900 students participating since its inception in 2007. With training and guidance, students with no prior experience in animation have been able to produce clips of broadcast quality to screen on free-to-air television. Some of these clips were even selected for international animation festivals and won several awards.

I can't draw.
I can't paint.

That's why I'm extremely amazed by the animation clips done by teams who have participated in the annual animation competition - N.E. mation!

The standard of the entries get higher and higher each year: colours, storyline and graphics.
Works like magic~

Yuhuuu everyone, N.E. mation is back with N.E.mation! 8 – It's your turn to win a trip to USA!

Theme for N.E.mation! 8

NE mation 8

N.E.mation! 8 has begun.

The theme for this year is 'Because You Played A Part'.

“30 years of security and stability as a nation was built upon everyone’s efforts. We stood with each other through the good times and bad, overcoming challenges and celebrating our successes. We are able to enjoy what we have in Singapore today because each of us has played a part, in building this nation, our home.”
