Win $5,000!

 Calling All Animators & Creatives!

 

We are launching a competition where participants will make a one-minute animation on a Jewish theme. Those who enter will have an opportunity to win a $5,000 cash prize!

We have 11 ideas for you to choose from, with accompanying scripts. The goal here is to inspire creatives to produce Jewish content, and help us spread Jewish ideas to the masses in an artistic and entertaining way. 

 

You will have two & a half months to complete your project: the due date is July 30th, the day of Tisha B’Av. We will uplift a traditionally sad day, by spreading the wellsprings of inspiring Torah & uniting Jews around creativity, art & Jewish thought. 

 

We are looking for your video to be accompanied by narration, music, sound effects & epic visuals! Please reach out if you need assistance with any part of this process - we’re here to help! 

 

The Rules:

  • Make an animated video at least 1 minute long.

  • Use one of our scripts. If you have an idea not listed here, or want to write your own script, please submit for review before you begin working on it, so we can vet that it is in line with our message and Torah.

  • Submit by July 30th, Tisha B’Av.

  • You may use all the help you can get, it does not have to be a solo project.

  • We will be judging the video based on four categories:

    • Visual Quality 

    • Delivery

    • Sound Quality

    • Time / Effort Put In

 

The Winners:

  • Every entry will receive a reward.

  • The Grand Winner will receive $5,000!

  • Future job opportunities available for individual creators who exhibit excellence in their fields.

 

Our panel of judges will review the videos, and the winners will be announced Rosh Chodesh Elul, August 20. Top videos will be featured on our media platforms.
