MyToons.com -- now in HD -- have launched their latest contest for animators all over the world.
Get with the Times! is an HD animation contest that will send one grand prize winner to New York City to see their animation played on a Clear Channel billboard, powered by Adobe Flash technology, in Times Square. Animators are invited to submit their HD animations at MyToons.com/contests/TimesSquare.
Running through September 4, 2008, Get with the Times! invites animators to upload their HD animations for a chance to win a two-night trip to New York City to eat dinner at the strategically located Chop Suey restaurant while watching their animation play once every hour on the Spectacolor HD Clear Channel billboard over Times Square. In addition to this all-inclusive trip, the winner will also take home a copy of Adobe Creative Suite 3 Master Collection.
Weekly winners will be determined by a combination of community votes and MyToons judging, and will take home an iPod Nano filled to the brim with MyToons animation. Site-wide voting is ongoing and will continue through September 4. The grand prize winner will be announced on September 12, and two runners-up will also take home a copy of Adobe Creative Suite 3 Master Collection.
