    Okay, this has been discussed but to my knowledge it hasn’t been done yet.

    [spoiler=Instructions/Rules]1. One person posts a mini animation contest (e.g. “Best Walk Cycle”)
    2. People make their films.
    3. The original poster judges 1st, 2nd, 3rd and more if they so desire.
    4. Then the winner posts another contest.
    5. If a winner fails to post their contest within 24 hours the 2nd place person posts one and so on.
    6. Once a contest is posted, the entrants have one month to make their clip.
    7. You may include sound.
    8. You may post your entry before the week is up.[/spoiler]

    Have fun!

    My contest is: “Best 30 Second Fight Scene!”

    It can be under 30 seconds but that is the maximum.

    I accept this challenge! 30 second fight scene? Pfft.

    Do you have a deadline set for each challenge or does it all depend on the number of entries posted?

    I like this. The incentive I see here is that it gives animators a reason to animating and help improve their skills.

    Do you want just a 30 second fight scene or can there be sound and stuff? ANd if you choose not to use sound, would this affect your chance of winning?

    A 30 second fight scene is pretty long to animate.

    Sounds fun. I’ll give it a go.

    I’m sure Errol will enter. :wink

    @ Lech: As said in the rules, you have a week to make each film.

    I will also add to the rules that you can have sound. I suppose that it depends entirely on the current judge as to whether it will lower your chances if you don’t have sound.

    Good idea MB. I want to do it but I don’t think I will have timeas I am filming Cell 1023 at the moment.

    I was planning to work a same kind of contest out even more, into a more encouraging version, (Outdo This!, for those who can remember my idea in the chat) but my laptop is still away for reparations.

    I hope you aren’t stealing it, MB.
