Penguin Animation Contest

Great idea! Students should enter!

The Aquarium of the Pacific in Long Beach will be opening its first ever penguin exhibit this year on May 17, 2012. As part of the festivities, we are hosting a contest to create an animated video that highlights penguins in celebration of the Aquarium’s opening of its new penguin habitat.

  • All entries must be received by 12:00 a.m. on Tues. 5/1/2012, include mention of the Aquarium of the Pacific and the opening of the new June Keyes Penguin Habitat.
  • All entries must be family friendly, highlight penguins in a positive manner, and not exceed three minutes.
  • The top five entries that are chosen as the “most creative penguin animations” will be posted on Facebook no later than 6:00 p.m. on Fri. 5/4/12 and the winner will be determined by whichever video receives the most YouTube and Facebook “likes” by Tuesday 5/15/2012. Please note that the only Facebook likes counted will be on the Aquarium’s official posts.
  • The grand prize winner will be awarded a $500 cash prize along with a penguin encounter experience for two people at the Aquarium. Please note you must be 10 years or older to participate in the penguin encounter. If the grand prize winner is under 10 years old, he/she will receive the $500 cash prize and four Aquarium admission tickets (instead of the penguin encounter).
  • The winner and four runner-ups will have their videos featured on the Aquarium’s YouTube channel and Facebook page
  • To enter, upload the link to your video on YouTube
