Motion Graphics

Motion graphics are a way to communicate with the viewer, and add depth to a story. Together with music and effective copy, they can give us a message. We use them to create ads, title sequences for movies, videos and to share information.

Category Brief

The judges are looking for the best young artists passionate about motion graphics. You will need to show experience with creating motion graphics or motion design for film, television, music videos, promotional videos and similar visual media. The judges are looking to find the best technical and creative artists that can show a solid understanding of everything from type, colour, animation, story telling and design.

Important Notes

  • A great tip is to make sure you include the original brief you challenged yourself with. The way you approach and solve the brief is just as important as the finished video.
  • Motion design is a fairly hazy term that overlaps with animation, graphic design and filmmaking. If you want to work as a motion designer, share your work in this category.
  • Ask questions on our Discord Channel if you need help.
  • Review Winning Entries from last year that were selected by our judges.
