I've got good news and bad news.
Blend might just be the best conference in the history of conferences. For Motion Designers, it’s like traveling to Shangri-La. You get to hang out in the wildly beautiful city of Vancouver, meet and geek out with MoGraphers from all over the globe, and hear from incredible speakers who will inspire and educate you. It’s MoHeaven.
There’s just one problem with Blend. It’s SOLD OUT.
The conference is so popular that all of the tickets were gone just a few hours after they went on sale. When it was announced that Blend had sold out, there was a great gnashing of teeth and rending of garments. A cry arose from the Twitter-sphere…. NOOOOOOO!
But… there might still be a way for you to make it to Blend.
We have in our possession TWO EXTRA TICKETS, and we’re going to be giving them away. That’s right… you may still be able to make it to Blend!
Check out the Rules below.
Details & Rules
We have 2 tickets to give away, and the winners will be chosen by School of Motion. Only one ticket per winner can be awarded.
Entries must be submitted by 6pm EST on Friday, March 17th.
Winners will be announced via E-mail, Facebook and Twitter on March 21st.
If you win, we will notify you with instructions.
The prize for winning is a ticket to the Blend conference in Vancouver which runs on May 26th and 27th, 2017.
You will be responsible for your own airfare, lodging, and other expenses associated with going. We are only providing the conference ticket.
How to Enter
- Create a 5-second looping MoGraph self-portrait. Export it as an endlessly-looping GIF, 600x600 pixels. This GIF should illuminate the deep parts of your soul, it should be brutal in it's portrayal of your true essence... in GIF form.
- Upload the GIF to Giphy.
- Post the GIF on Twitter with the hashtag #SendMeToBlend, and make sure to tag @schoolofmotion and @blendfest. This step is mandatory.
- Click the big green button to open the contest submission form. You’ll be asked to write a short essay (a paragraph or two) about why you’d like to go to Blend. You might want to have that prepared before you click the button.
- Wait patiently until March 21st and keep your fingers crossed.
We're looking for cool design & animation on the GIF, a clever concept maybe, and a sweet loop. The essay is very important, because we want to know why you'd like to travel all the way to Vancouver for a MoGraph conference. It's a fair question, amiright?
That's it! Good luck! And thanks so much for being a part of the School of Motion community.
