Congratulations, James Mason!

We had a lot of great entries, but James Mason's PIGGING TELEGRAM received overwhelming praise. Everyone was impressed with the smoothness of the animation, creative use of space/movement and economical amount of shapes. It streams well and has an adorable soundtrack. I look forward to seeing all the great stuff James is going to make with his new Wacom!

Week 4 Winners!
Week 4 Winners!

Two great animated birthday wishes, with completely different approaches.  Jojo Aquino's HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! goes the tradional route featuring an adorable mouse. (Nice touch with the musical notes - solves that need for visual representation).  Aurelio Maldonado's BAMBOO BIRTHDAY is fun and different. And it features a ninja and a panda. How cool is that?

Respect to our hero, Nacho

Since he participates in our Aniboom Creators Studio, he can't win anything in our current competition, but obviously, if he could, he would. Nacho Rodriguez is a  master of cartoon animation. Check out his BIRTHDAY BLOWING for a look at how it's done.

Week 3 Winners!

What I'm most impressed by with this week's winners is the level of creativity. Both Djordje Ungar and David Salinas's animated birhday wishes, HAPPY BIRTHDAY ANIBOOM! and FIREWORKS B-CARD use ideas that wouldn't even occur to the majority of us. The way the jack-in-the-box springs forward is incredible and exploding fireworks are always associated with good times. Way to go, guys!

So many great entries!
So many great entries!

Just this last week it's like the number of Shapeshifter birthday wishes animations have exploded in number! And they just keep getting better and better.  We've only got four winners left before the big one. It's going to be so hard to pick them! Thanks, guys, for making this competition tough!

As much as we love that you guys are wishing us happy birthday, please leave our name out of the animation you're making for the birthday wishes competition. We want this to be something that anyone could receive on their birthday.
