N.E.mation!8 is back for it's 8th edition!

Sponsored Advertorial
N.E.mation! is back for its 8th edition and waiting for YOU to participate in it! All it takes is 3 simple steps for you and your team to compete with other schools and win a trip to USA. Just follow the steps below:

1. Form a team of 3 to 4 students from your school.
You have to be a student of a Secondary School,Junior College or a Centralized Institution. Plus you must be a Singaporean or a Singapore Permanent Residents.

2. Register online at http://nemation.sg/
3. Submit your story ideas on the theme by 21st August 2013, 1PM.

This year's theme is:
Because you played a part
“30 years of security and stability as a nation was built upon everyone’s efforts. We stood with each other through the good times and bad, overcoming challenges and celebrating our successes. We are able to enjoy what we have in Singapore today because each of us has played a part, in building this nation, our home.”
I feel that this theme will go well with many of us because we have all in our own ways done our part for Singapore. N.E.mation! helps students with their creativity,giving them a chance to work as a team and overcome obstacles together. If you are not sure how to start off,do visit the Free online Story Workshop at http://nemation.sg/story/ and receive coaching on your story ideas when N.E.mation! visit you in school, or when you attend their Public Story Clinic session*!
(*The option to choose your preferred Public Story Clinic session is available when you register online. 83% of all past N.E.mation! Top 10 teams attended this same Story Clinic session and this is why you need it too!)

N.E.mation! is a digital animation competition organised by Nexus for youths to express their thoughts on Total Defence. Into its eighth season this year, the competition has proven highly successful, with more than 9,900 students participating since its inception in 2007. With training and guidance, students with no prior experience in animation have been able to produce clips of broadcast quality to screen on free-to-air television. Some of these clips were even selected for international animation festivals and won several awards. It is an opportunity for students to explore and expand their network,developing skills that can help them in life. A very meaningful experience that I feel students should be encouraged to join this competition and broaden their perspective of the world.
