The .Gif That Keeps On .Giffing Holiday Contest


The Seasonal Shenanigans continue this December at Kidrobot with our fun inducing, eye popping, social spreading holiday contest — The .Gif That Keeps .Giffing!

What are the best presents to get for the holidays? Yeah, other than the new iPhone, That’s right TOYS! And what fun are toys if you can’t play with them? For this year’s Seasonal Shenanigans, Kidrobot is challenging you to bust out your toys, grab your digital picture capturing device, or iPhone, and create a smile inflicting, color popping, prize winning photo or .gif animation.

Here’s the deal — there will be 3 contests. Each week will have a different theme and a certain type of toy or artist you must use in your entry. You can enter as many times as you want. All submissions must be emailed to Deadline each week will end in that Sunday. The winner will be chosen by Kidrobot. Here are the weekly themes, toys and artists.
