I came across this contest that is after animations of the dearly departed Graham Chapman, based on excerpts of his autobiography, or rather, of him reading excerpts from it. Those that comply with the rules and are chosen will have their work featured in the DVD box set of the new feature celebrating his life/autobiography, as well as on the Monty Python youtube channel and PythOnline. I'm not an artist myself, but I couldn't resist passing it on.
Final Submissions must be in by October 22. I believe you also need to have Adobe Creative Suite 6 Production Premium, but they allow you to download a trial of that on the website below. Those in the know may understand all this better than I do.
