    • Hi Ruhaan! The art must be able to be printed, so animation might not be best for this contest. However, you can definitely submit the animation to the blog.

  1. Hi ,
    I missed this contest. I was submitting things for the monthly flash contest when I realized that an opportunity existed. When will the next contest deadline be, please?
    Thank you, Mihaela
