MyToons Launches Animation Contest for Creepy Cartoons
Animation Social Network Invites All Artists to Submit Creepy Artwork & Animation in Celebration of Halloween
OCTOBER 14, 2008 – SAN ANTONIO – MyToons.com, the world’s first and only online animation community to deliver HD animation, today announced the launch of its latest artwork and animation contest, Creepy Cartoons. Creepy Cartoons invites artists and animators worldwide to upload their Halloween-inspired creations in celebration of this ancient Druid holiday. Halloween, much like animation, has transitioned from a kid-centric phenomenon to one increasingly enjoyed by adults.
In the spirit of Halloween, MyToons will award winning animators with Disney & Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas: Collector’s Edition DVD, along with the Nightmare Revisited soundtrack CD, as well as celebratory exposure on the highly-trafficked MyToons.com homepage. The 2-Disc collection has been digitally remastered and restored with state-of-the-art technology, and is the first Disney DVD to include a downloadable Disney file. The Nightmare Revisited soundtrack is a frightfully fun collection of cover songs from the cult-classic movie, and features covers from artists such as Danny Elman, Polyphonic Spree, All American Rejects, and Marilyn Manson.
“Halloween is a fun holiday that brings out the kid in all of us. Who can resist the opportunity to play a little dress-up or, in this case, toss some gore into our toons?” asks Stacey Ford, CCO and co-founder of MyToons.com. “We are definitely fans of All Hallow’s Eve here at MyToons, and we invite all artists and animators to celebrate the season and share in our enthusiasm. So, dig your animated skeletons out of the closet and send shadowy shivers up the spines of all your fans by uploading your creepiest animations to MyToons.com!”
MyToons.com is accepting submissions throughout the month of October. Members are invited to enter by uploading their artwork or animation and tagging them as “Creepy Cartoons – Halloween.” Selected artwork and animations will be featured daily on the MyToons blog, The Animation Snack, as well as the Creepy Cartoons Channel on the MyToons.com homepage, where it will be available through November 2nd.
The Creepy Cartoons artwork and animation contest begins today and continues through November 2nd. For more information please visit The Animation Snack.
