New Cracking Ideas Competition Celebrates 40 Years of Aardman!

We’ve teamed up with the Intellectual Property Office again this year to bring Aardman fans some new Cracking Ideas challenges to take part in, with some fantastic prizes up for grabs! The competition ties in with Aardman’s 40th birthday, which happens later this year.

With the help of Morph, Wallace and Gromit, and Shaun the Sheep and Timmy, youngsters aged 4-16 are being given the opportunity to develop their creative ideas to help celebrate this landmark occasion.

Who is the competition for?

There is a dedicated competition for three age categories, each of which ties in with a favourite Aardman character (4-7 – Shaun/Timmy, 8-11 – Wallace and Gromit, 12-16 – Morph). You can enter the competition individually or as a group (through your school, nursery or youth group, for example)

How to take part in the Morph competition

The Morph challenge gives you the opportunity to make your very own film! Write, produce and direct a film that wishes Aardman a happy birthday, perhaps using Morph or other Aardman characters as your stars! You could try your hand at animation or film yourself and your classmates. There are lots of materials in the free downloadable pack to help and inspire you, including a storyboard and Morph’s Step by Step Filmmakers Kit.┬áThe Morph competition closes on the 22nd July 2016.

The prizes

When you’re happy with your birthday surprise story board, you can submit your entry online or in the post. One winning entry will receive a visit from an Aardman expert for a model making workshop session and screening at your school, plus a multi-user licence for the Animate It! software by Kudlian!
