N.E.mation! is an annual inter-school digital animation competition organised by Nexus, for students from secondary schools, junior colleges and centralised institutes to express their thoughts on Total Defence. The competition has been very well-received, reaching more than 15,000 students participants over the last decade since its inception in 2007. With training and guidance, students with no prior experience in animation have been able to produce clips of broadcast quality to screen on free-to-air television. Some of these clips were even selected for international animation festivals and won several awards.
For N.E.mation! 11, students are asked to use their creativity to produce animation clips centred on the theme of “Together We Keep Singapore Strong“. The animation clips produced by the top 10 finalist teams will be judged by a panel comprising industry professionals and the public. The public can vote for their three favourite clips around January 2017 at https://nemation.sg, Facebook or via SMS. The winning team will win a coveted trip to visit renowned animation studios in the USA!
