SPOTTED: N.E.mation! 8 is back!

N.E.mation! is back for its 8th season this year! For the uninitiated, N.E.mation! is a digital animation competition for youths to express their thoughts on Total Defence. This competition is proudly organized by Nexus and as aforementioned, is in its 8th year running. The past 7 years have been nothing but success, garnering more than 9,900 students participating. With no prior experience in animation, these students undergo weeks of training and guidance to produce quality clips. I'm sure you have seen some of their works in theaters! :D

This year's theme is 'Because You Played A Part'. The top 10 clips will be judged by a panel of esteemed judges, including Melvin Tan, Senior Animator of Blue Sky Studios. And guess what the winning team gets? A trip to visit a renowned animation studio in USA!
