CSULB Animations students compete in 24-hour contest

Posted on October 11, 2018 by School of Art

Logo of contest with the number 24 inside a stopwatchNow in our 16th year, the 24 HOURS Animation Contest for Students challenges its participants to create a 30 second film based on a given theme in a designated 24-hour period. Teams work from their home school and submit a Youtube link of their films before the deadline, which are judged by industry artists.
This has been such a successful event with the student’s attendance rapidly growing each year. This year we had 219 teams from 49 schools (that’s 1095 students) from 9 countries (Australia, Brazil, Canada, Mexico, USA, Thailand, Czech Republic, Germany and the UK!) compete.
This contest teaches our students much about working together, meeting deadlines and making creative decisions under pressure. Although it is quite a bit to do in such a short time, every year we always have completed, 30-second colored films AND they all have a lot of fun and return for more each year – so it’s a proven model they really enjoy.

Congratulations to TEAM HIBAJI from the Ringling College of Art and Design, from Sarasota, Florida, USA for their first-place prize for their film! We will be sharing all of this year’s films on Youtube for everyone to enjoy. We look forward to seeing students back to compete again next year. See you in 8736 HOURS!!!. Sincerely, Aubry Mintz, 24 HOURS Contest Creator
