I shouldn't click my own ads for Google, my sponsors, though the money goes to charity anyway. However in the case of Big Star TV I make an exception. There is a monthly prize of $1000 with grand competition winner of $5000 at the end of the year. Deadline Date: Jan 23, 2009 for the animation short. For this on-line competition of 3 to 15 minutes of content there are no restrictions on content or degree of expertise! Worth it.
