Animation13 is open to all UK schoolchildren aged 7-19.

Animation13 is a free-to-enter, not-for-profit competition run by The University of Manchester, to enthuse young people about Computer Science. Teacher registration is free and carries no. All registered teachers will receive free colour A2 Animation13 posters for their school, to be sent out in November.

Entrants can create their animations (maximum duration: 1 minute) using any of the following programs: Alice, Scratch, Adobe Flash, Serif: Draw Plus, KoolMoves, SWiSH Max4 and Blender.

There are great prizes, awarded at the Animation Festival and Inspirational Computer Science Day held at The University of Manchester on 12 July 2013.
