Doctor Simpo's Animated Antidote Cartoon Competition
Dates and times

Wednesday 6.30pm - 6.45pm

Animator and Senior Lecturer in Animation at Leeds Arts University, Ben Simpson aka Doctor Simpo, has announced an animation competition to blow away the isolation blues. The competition runs on Youtube with a series of weekly animation tips delivered by Doctor Simpo in less than three minutes each Wednesday.

Find the workshops here.

The competition brief from Doctor Simpo is to provide sixty seconds of ‘funny, silly, wacky wild, down-right-daft screen time to blow away the anxiety of our times, with above all – laughter!’. A shortlist of ten animations will be shown at the Holmfirth Film Festival in November. Prizes are provided by Holmfirth Film Festival and Bates Mill Creative Spaces and will be awarded in three categories:

Children (Aged 17 and under): £75
Students (Any age): £150
Professional/adult entries (18 and over): £300
