Ray Harryhausen's Fantasy Scrapbook Animation Competition

Deadline: Closed

To celebrate publication of his latest book, Ray Harryhausen’s Fantasy Scrapbook, Don’t Panic has teamed up with publishers Aurum Press and Barbican Film to offer three talented animators the chance to meet Ray at his home and have their stop-motion animation short shown at a glittering Ray Harryhausen night at the Barbican next spring.

Ray Harryhausen is perhaps best known for creating weird and wonderful monsters and creatures. Your task is to create a winning storyboard on the theme of monsters for a stop motion animation short that, when shot, would last between 30 seconds and 3 minutes.

The three winners will also receive a tutorial session from tutors in the animation department of the National Film and Television School. They will be profiled along with their shorts shown on the Barbican and Don’t Panic websites, win a year’s free Yellow Membership and signed copies of Ray Harryhausen’s Fantasy Scrapbook.
