Enter the "Toontown Shorts" Video Contest!

Posted by The Toontown Team on February 21, 2016 at 6:30 PM

Lights, camera, CONTEST! It's been a while since we hosted a contest for you Toons, so this time we're on a search for the next big thing. Whether you have a knack for storytelling, really keen video editing skills, or just want to have some fun -- we want to see your creations!



What kind of video should you make, you ask? We'll be selecting three videos to be our grand prize winners based off of these categories:

Best Idea

Have you got the creative wit, but not necessarily the best video editor? Our winner from this category will be chosen based on what our team members consider to be the most creative idea in the whole contest.

Best Editing

A lot of you REALLY know your way around a video editor, and we REALLY want to see the best that you can create! This grand prize winner will be whoever has the video with top-notch production quality.

Most "TOON Enough"

There's plenty of ways to describe Toontown. Wacky, Toontastic, zany and creative to name a few. There's just some things that have a certain charm to them, and the winner of this miscellaneous category will go to whoever may not fall into the other two categories, but still captures the charm of Toontown!

Even though our winners will be picked based off of those categories, we don't want you to pick a specific one to try and create. If you have a great idea AND great video editing, by all means, do both! We much rather have a well-rounded video than one that has too much of a certain area.

Here's a quick summary of the official rules, regulations, and all that mumbo-jumbo!

  • To enter, create an up to three minutes long Toontown Short about any story you can imagine! It can be an advertisement, comedy, backstory -- anything relating to Toontown.
  • All three grand prize winners will receive a real life Toontown Prize Pack, as well as have their videos featured on the Toontown website!
  • Once you've created your video, upload it to YouTube and head over to the Submission Page to submit your URL.
  • Include the tag "ToontownShorts" in your video so that others can find it easier! All approved entries will also be added to our Toontown Shorts Playlist.
  • All entries should be submitted before March 20th, 2016 at 11:59PM PST. The grand prize winners will be announced soon after!

Think you've got what it takes? Check out all of the other rules and details over on the Submission Page.

Here are a few existing Toontown Shorts we've hand-picked to give you some ideas. These aren't made by us, but we certainly enjoy them!


We're excited to see what you can come up with! If you need help uploading your video or have any questions about the contest, please don't hesitate to email us at [email protected]. You can also check out Google's help page to learn how to upload videos to YouTube.

Well, I wish you luck in the contest! Maybe this could be an opportunity for some Toons to be with the TTR Team to help create new custom cutscene animations in the game, video trailer animations, like how Blizzard does with their WOW patch trailers, & so on. Again, Toons, best wishes!

Omigosh! I love watching toons create projects like these for Toontown. I probably won't attend in the contest (not enough expirience in Panda3D or animations), but I do give major kudos to all those putting in effort for the contest. Goo luck everyone, and remember to have plenty of fun. :D

Lucky Star said on February 23, 2016 at 8:38 AM

This is awesome! I really don't think I'll win because I don't have any good software and have Bandicam watermarks lol, but it's always fun to try! :) ....and who knows, maybe I WILL win! But I doubt it lol, best of luck to all!

Funny Quackers said on February 23, 2016 at 4:06 PM
It'd be a fruitless attempt for me to enter the contest (since there'd be so many other toons participating, I wouldn't even be seen), so it'd probably be a waste of my own time, however I really can't wait to see what the TTR community comes up with, it'll be really interesting!

Toonz McGee said on February 23, 2016 at 4:33 PM
Tbh I can't wait to see what quackity enters into this contest. Good luck too all <3

Melody said on February 23, 2016 at 10:08 PM
I watched the three videos, and they were hilarious! Since I'm not the creative type, can't wait to see what everyone else comes up with.

I have one question. How do we make the shorts? Is there like a specific website or whatever?

C.J. Electropaws said on February 25, 2016 at 2:45 PM
This really sounds like fun and I already have a million ideas floating through my head. One problem thou, I don't now how to computer edit, I don't even know how to take a online video, but my brother dose(P.s he also plays Toontown). Are we allowed to work on this together as a team effort?

sunflowerdandviolets100 said on February 25, 2016 at 4:23 PM

Cunning Angel said on February 26, 2016 at 1:17 PM

If we enter this contest, do we have to put the video on Youtube, like is there a different way for you guys to see it?

Fat Sneezy said on February 28, 2016 at 2:09 PM
I wish I had the ability to record this sounds cool. I would like to see what other toons make, because I cant make something myself. Aw this sounds so cool.

Cookiepie said on February 28, 2016 at 2:12 PM
Cool Contest! Wonder what will happen during that contest!

Dr. Giggles said on February 28, 2016 at 2:13 PM
I just wish that I had an idea of what i'm supposed to do with this, because I am not sure whether I should do a stop motion type of thing or what but all in all this sounds toon-tastic!!!

Cookiepie (64 laff ) said on February 28, 2016 at 2:14 PM
