As part of our commitment to supporting the teaching of computing in Schools we run the annual UK Schools Computer Animation Competition. The competition is designed to enthuse schoolchildren aged 7-19 about Computer Science.
Run annually since 2008, it has been funded by organisations including Electronic Arts, Google, Autodesk and Microsoft. To enter, children create an original computer animation, up to one minute in length, using any of a number of eligible packages including: Alice, Flash, Scratch, Blender and Serif Draw. Children can enter as individuals or in small teams, and win prizes for the best work in four age groups: 7-11, 11-14, 14-16 and 16-19.
The entries are shown to a panel of judges before we announce the winners and highly commended films in the Summer.
The Competition is open to all UK schoolchildren aged 7-19, and is completely free.
