#3 Prize of €6,700 for One Extra Year

MARAMING SALAMAT PO! eYeka is AWESOME! It helped me choose which style I can focus on! haha!

eYeka is a great platform to hone your skills (Any skill, from writing, to animating, to graphic design, to editing)

I join eYeka contests to enhance my skills in stopmotion animation and also to unwind the creative juices of my brain. It is also a great tool for collaboration. Through the years, I made lots of friends here in eYeka. Sometimes when we win, I give their share of the winning money, even if they are living in another continent. I just send it via wire transfer, but many times we lose. Well, ''it happens. hehehe!. Even though I lose a lot. I always learn from it. Like if I want to learn how to make a shadow animation, I just select which contest in eYeka in okay to use that style. Then I do it. If it wins, its good because I have extra money to help other people. If I lose then its okay because I learned how to make that kind of animation. So it's really awesome to learn something new. As you can see in my works. It ranges from motion graphics, live editing, flash animation, poster design. You name it. I lose a lot in these contests but this is my passion and it didn't stop me. Don't lose hope when you don't win. Just try again. I just enjoy when I enter the contests. So start entering in those live contests now and just enjoy making your entry! Enjoy and have fun learning while making them! If you want to collaborate or just want to talk, add me up. My contact is in my eYeka profile page.

Cheers!
