The Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (RSPCA) has launched this year’s animation competition. They want you to create…

“a pre-roll animation, to play before some of the videos on our site that shows the best of humanity and promotes the positive relationship between people and animals. Animals in your animation must be acting naturally, you shouldn’t dress them in clothes or portray them dancing. Your animation should be in keeping with our values and promote what we do; it should appeal to a broad audience.”

“Pre-roll” seems to be trendy new TV insider-jargon for a TV channel’s animated logo (the one that gets inserted just before a programme starts). It used to be called an “ident”. Deadline: 4th September 2010. There’s no entry fee, and it seems to welcome entrants from around the world.
