Competitions: Flipnote Studio - Amazing Giveaway Winners

Posted by Corbie Dillard

Check out the winners of the Flipnote Studio - Amazing Giveaway.

To coincide with the release of the painfully addictive Flipnote Studio on DSiWare, we teamed up with our good friends at Nintendo UK to offer lucky Nintendo Life readers the opportunity to win some great prizes.

After carefully going through the very hefty amount of submissions for the contest, we all got together here at Nintendo Life and picked up the three entries we thought were the best overall. It was a tough decision on many of them as we received a lot of outstanding and very creative entries. You can see the winning entries we chose below.

Winners will be contacted soon to collect their Nintendo Point prizes and let us say thanks again for all the great submissions.


First Place - 10,000 Nintendo Points


"The Fly and the Ball"

We hope everyone enjoyed the competition and we look forward to giving away more prizes in the near future, so stay tuned!

There were a lot of good ones in there to be sure. I cannot believe this application is free!

There were so many good entries, I spent hours just looking through them all without being able to pick a single favourite! Congratulations to those who did win and a huge thanks to everyone who entered and showed off their talents!

IMO, first place should've swapped places with third. I was gonna argue Objection for first (big Ace Attorney fan here), but I just can't deny the awesome that is the flying animation. But it's always up to personal opinon of the judges, and at least those two still made the top three at all.

Sort of off-topic, but still related: Does anybody know how strict the Flipnote censors are? I was making a video based on a song, and partway through realized I might not be able to upload it because of a single occurence of the word "ass." I tried to use a sound effect to bleep it out, but that didn't work at all. Do you think I could get away with uploading it? Here's the source song, in case it helps.




Any Americans you liked in particular. doesnt have to be a specific flipnote, it can be a user, im just curious.
Congrats winners!!!

Wow, very impressive submissions! It must have been really tough to pick a favorite but I personally liked The Fly Part 1 and Objection! I thought all of the entries were brilliant! Congratulations guys!



Chunky_Droid said:

It took me about 4 hours to find my favourite entries, all you guys are absolutely awesome, thanks for a very entertaining time



PhillaLoup said:

I WON... o_O' wtf
congratulations to the others ... i am so excited! i was not sure if "the fly and the ball" would be so cool ... i decided to make a second one (episode II) but didn't get it ready. (it's more complicated with lightsabers, close-ups and stuff)... ooooh THAT made my day



Chunky_Droid said:

Congrats Gonzo! Can't wait to see ep II, I loved the first one.

I have to give an honorable mention to the Magikarp evolving into Gyarados video, I loved that one too



PhillaLoup said:

Olivercd's "The Fly: Part One" was my favorite. And the Gyarados video was ridiculous funny



Twilight_Crow said:

Congratulations guys!
The winners should post your flipnotes in here too, for the ones that couldn't see them, there were a moment the contest page just didn't load due to lack of memory .

It was really difficult to narrow it down. I think, at one point, I had a list of 10 or more, and it was painful to have to trim down from that. Great job, everybody, and congrats to the winners. You obviously put a lot of effort into these, and I'm glad to see it paid off!



olivercd said:

Third place! thanks a lot guys! I´m really happy for this. And congratulations to the other winners, they are amazing animations!



ReZon said:

Nice job guys! Those were some impressive flipnotes! Enjoy the loot!



Maidens said:

Wow, thank you! This has really made my day. =D Gota say I love the other two winner Flipnotes as well, and I particularly liked the one with Magikarp evolving into Gyarados too.

But yes, thank you very much! =)



Objection said:

Aw, why are they only screnshots and not the animations?
EDIT: Okay, there are links.



Shortay said:

Well done to the three winners, it was really tough narrowing my selections down because there were so many great entries.



Dazza said:

Congrats to the winners. What a great competition, you should all give yourselves a pat on the back, the standard of animations was really high!



Scarecrow said:

I enjoyed this competition, entering and looking at all the other entries. Thanks NintendoLife for organising it.

Well done to all the winners.



Castro said:

Wow congratulations. Really good work, I loved the third one especially.

Impressive stuff! I just noticed that this game was free (I suck ) so I downloaded it. Looks fun!
