The Giphoscope Award - Update
Giphoscope are running a GIF competition this month for a chance for someone to win a handcrafted animation device. The entries will be judged by okkultmotionpictures, you-dot-gif, and myself.
The deadline for submissions is the 31st of May (a week and a half away as of posting this). Entries have to be Tumblr-friendly uploads: 1MB at 500 pixels wide, or under 2MB at 400 pixels wide (it’s worth checking if they work by saving them as a draft first).
The Giphoscope is designed to display 24 frames, but submissions with an equally divisable number within this limit can also be submitted (such as 12 frames or 8). If your entry wins, your animation (without it’s file size restrictions) can be used to produce it.
Also worth noting is the winner can choose between traditional wooden or the recently announced marble stands.
Some entries to the competition are featured above, including GIFs from zwian, omniscient-duck, Nicolas Boillot, and twistedwillowblog.
