About N.E.mation! 8 

N.E.mation! is a digital animation competition organised by Nexus for youths to express their thoughts on Total Defence. Into its eighth season this year, the competition has proven highly successful, with more than 9,900 students participating 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. 

This year, students are asked to use their creativity to produce storylines centred on the theme of “Because You Played A Part”. The animation clips produced by the top 10 finalist teams will be judged by a panel comprising industry professionals such as Melvin Tan (Senior Animator, Blue Sky Studios).

In addition, the public can vote for their three favourite clips come January 2014 at, Facebook or via SMS.

The winning team will win a coveted trip to visit a renowned animation studio in the USA!
