The May cS Awards and the April cS Awards Finalists! admin | May 7th, 2013

Back in 2011, we announced a monthly cS Award to honor quality work by designers and writers in the crowdSPRING community.

The May cS Award

We’re pretty excited for the May cS award. It’s our first foray into video! So dust off your reel, brush up on your AfterEffects skills, and let’s get ready to render.

We’re asking for :30 to :60 second clips from a favorite, existing motion design, visual effect or animation project. The submissions can be brand spanking new and created especially for this award or they can be a favorite existing clips for which you own the rights.

Show us the fun, creative work you’re most proud of. Show us WHY your clients love you.

When you submit your clip, please include a small statement along with your submission that talks about what you like about the clip you chose and why it’s special to you.

We’ll invite the world to vote on our favorite clips and the winner will get $1,000.

So upload your best and favorite clip here. And please tell your friends! We’re all looking forward to seeing your directorial debuts!

And now…. the April cS Award Finalists….
