Winners of N.E.mation! Competition 2007


Winners of N.E.mation! Competition

NEmators from CHIJ St Joseph's Convent came up tops with their clip, Just Because in N.E.mation!, an animation competition for Total Defence 2007.
Minister of State (Defence) Associate Professor Koo Tsai Kee presented the prizes at this morning's ceremony at the Anglo-Chinese Junior College.
NEmators impressed the voters and judges with a video clip that best articulates this year's Total Defence theme of "confidence, commitment and cohesion".
The team will be rewarded with a fully sponsored visit to Studio Ghibli in Japan to learn more about animation. The winning clip, together with selected clips from the other finalists, will be screened island-wide on television channels, TV Mobile and cinema screens from March 2007.
The competition attracted a total of 124 entries by over 300 students. Ten finalist teams were selected to undergo a two-week animation workshop to translate their storyboards into animation clips.
The winners of the competition were then determined by points from a public voting system and a panel of judges comprising industry professionals. Almost 30,000 votes were received during the two-week online public voting which started on 14 February 2007.
Mr Eric Tan, Assistant Director, Community & International Relations (Media Development Authority), who was one of the judges said that "N.E.mation! is definitely a great initiative using interactive and digital media to communicate the importance of National Education, and at the same time, involving the participation of Singaporeans - both in the creation and voting of content - as part of a total national effort. I was personally very heartened to see the high standards of the clips, cleverly woven with ideas about Total Defence."
