The Animation Challenge was created by "Fancy Pants" in 2009 on "Bricks In Motion". The purpose of the challenge was to identify particular movements, characters, and situations that are difficult to animate and then figure out new ways to overcome those challenges.

The challenge is run completely by volunteers and has been active to this day.

How it worksEdit

"Once a theme has been chosen, the community has a set amount of time to make an entry (usually a week). Once the deadline has passed, the member who chose the theme will judge the entries and decide which of the entries matched up to the challenge the best. The winner will then choose the new theme, and the cycle continues. The thread title should change to match the current challenge, but if it doesn't you'll just have to go search for it"

-Excerpt from BiM

Being an unofficial contest with no prizes, the host often changes the Theme or extends the deadline for convenience.
