Safety animation contest question--where?

Apologies to the moderators for reposting, but I got no responses for this query in the IT forum. Simple question:

Where do you find the details for the Autodesk safety animation contest? I found last year's. Is it just the same thing again?

Isn't there another animation competition as well?

Any help is adored.

9/30/10 News- 2011 FIRST Safety Animation Award Contest Information

http://www.usfirst.org/roboticsprogr...nt.aspx?id=470
is what you probably found. It's linked to from this season's calendar and from the first link above, so while it hasn't been updated it's probably the same. The 2010 Safety Manual sounds like it isn't going to be updated with any changes.


per Bill's Blog:

Re: Safety animation contest question--where?

Thanks. This other guy (with the same name as you) already answered the question in the other forum.

Question part two: isn't there a different animation contest as well?

Re: Safety animation contest question--where?

There was. I believe that it's now a component of the Autodesk Award, as of last season. Check the Awards section of the manual when it comes out.

Re: Safety animation contest question--where?

Like Eric said, we find out details at Kickoff about the second Animation.
Here is the pertinent section of last year's rules talking about the Autodesk Animation award.

This year, Autodesk is proud to sponsor the Award for Excellence in Design – with two separate categories in this single Award. Category One will involve 3D Design; and Category Two will involve Animation.

All competitors for the Award will have the opportunity to choose from a range of 22+ Autodesk products to incorporate in their entry in 2010. Products are available for free*, along with learning materials and tech support, when you join www.autodesk.com/first However, if you enter in Category One your entry MUST include use of at least Autodesk Inventor Professional 2010. If you enter in Category Two, your entry MUST include use of at least either Autodesk 3ds Max or Autodesk Maya (GREAT news for those of you who enjoy working with the Macintosh platform: Maya runs on a Mac). Remember, you can use as many Autodesk products as you like…but use of at least one of the above products is required in the competition categories.

The complete and detailed information about the Award, including submittal format, deadlines, criteria, and judging process will be posted no later than January 9, 2010 on the FIRST website and on the FIRST section of the Autodesk Education Community at: www.autodesk.com/first.
I talk to that other guy with the same name sometimes...
