Pixarpedia competition


For all you Pixar fans out there, there’s a real treat for you coming up! Publisher DK is releasing a new book called Pixarpedia which, as the name suggests, is an encyclopedia of everything Pixar! They kindly sent us an advance copy and we can vouch for just how good the book is. Full of brilliant artwork and in-depth detail about all the key characters from all the films, there’s also behind-the-scenes interviews with key staff covering areas such as graphic design and sound engineering. And to celebrate the release of the book, DK have teamed up with Pixar and Total Film to launch an animation competition, with the amazing prize of an exclusive trip for two to Pixar Animation Studios in San Francisco!! Here’s what’s involved:

Create an original animation on the theme of ‘An Animated Adventure’

Short-listed animations will be judged by a team of Pixar artists, so that’s a pretty darn good opportunity for exposure in itself! You’ve got until the end of November to enter, and there’s more details over on the official Pixarpedia page.

You can also grab yourself a copy of Pixarpedia over on Amazon.


Sample pages, featuring Wall•E and the brilliant Edna from the Incredibles
