Question: Can you tell me how to get to Sesame Street?
1. Be a puppet.
2. Be Ricky Gervais.
3. Win the 4th Annual Aniboom Awards 4 Sesame Street Competition.
It’s that easy, animators. We’ve just learned that Sesame Street has teamed up with Aniboom Virtual Animation Studio to showcase talented animators leading the next generation of savvy children’s educational programming. And if seeing your winning work on the most iconic kids’ television program ever isn’t enough, there’s also $50,000 in prize money up for grabs.
Let me guess– you’re making Cookie Monster googly eyes now, aren’t you?
Submit your contest entry from March 1 to April 26 via the Aniboom website in any of the five categories aimed at teaching preschoolers, including a revamp of the famous Pinball Countdown. (But be sure to check out the rules, because actually using the Sesame Street characters is an immediate disqualification. You know, trademarks and all.)
Grab your laptop and follow the Snuffleupagus until you see the green sign. You can’t miss it. -Delilah
