Looking for animators!

Hey, my name is Noa, and I’m a content recruiter for Aniboom, the home of animation. aniboom.com is having its annual competition, which begun just a few weeks ago. You can be one of this year’s winners! The competition is open to beginners, students and professionals - whoever you are, as long you animate! :o
Just upload your movie unto aniboom.com to join the competition!

Out of 1700 entries from 70 countries, last year’s winner Jossie Malis took home a grand prize of $25,000. Also, this year, we have gathered an impressive panel of industry experts from seasoned animators to media executives to select the best of the best.

You can read more about the awards here. You can consult me with every questions you might have. :smiley:

Your product is very good, but I don’t have money.

aniboom ≠ toonboom

Aniboom is a site promoting independant animation. Toonboom is a software.

I intended to apply in last years competition, but just had’nt had the time to make an entry. Maybe this year…and it just may be made in blender. :slight_smile:

I can’t sign up. The mandatory “zone type” field won’t drop down for me.

You site hates firefox :(, I am not going to use IE explorer even on a bet.

you guys may try opera then… maybe?

toonboom is not our product, we’re just a platform for indie animation :smiley:

about the site issues: usually the site has no problems with firefox, that’s what I’m using now! If you have any specific tech issues just tell me and we’ll sort them out. my email is [email protected]. good luck! :ba:

here’s a treat for you guys:

Thanks for the update guy. But the submission deadline of December 31st might be a little tight for me. I am working on a film, but I don’t know if I can finish by then.

hope you do.
if not - there’s always aniboom awards 2008. or 2009… :slight_smile:

It seems like a cool site and I’d like to try to submit something, but it turns out that it is not possible to sign up with Firefox for the reason I wrote earlier, and it seems there are also problems with Safari. In Safari, specifically, tabbing and deleting don’t work. I did get the fields filled and pressed submit, but nothing happened, and, frankly I’m too busy to keep trying to sign up after failing 4 or 5 times on two different browsers. I use Mac and I don’t have Explorer on this machine, so I guess I’m out of the running.

In Firefox, specificially, as I said before, the “Member Type” dropdown does not drop down. It can’t be selected. Since it’s a mandatory field this means no signing up.

hey bugman,
we know there are still bugs with safari, and we’re still working to fix them.
about the firefox issue - can you please send me an email with the specific problem so I can forward it to the tech dept.? I just checked it on my machine (using firefox) and it seems to work out ok…
my mail is noa.content at aniboom.com
thanks!

We have selected the first group of Winners!
