The competition is now closed. We will announce the winner sometime tomorrow. Stay tuned!
To coincide with the release of the painfully addictive Flipnote Studio on DSiWare, we've teamed up with our good friends at Nintendo UK to offer lucky Nintendo Life readers the opportunity to win some great prizes.
To be in with a chance of winning simply create a animation which you think is technically brilliant, very funny or a cunning combination of both and upload it to the official Flipnote Studio website:
Once you have uploaded your clip, simply embed it in the comments section below using the 'Hatena Notation' insert code, like this example:
You simply need to copy-and-paste this code in-between square brackets like so: [xxxxxxxx]
The lucky winners will be chosen by the Nintendo Life team in a democratic fashion much like The X Factor, but with less crying and moaning from the losers.
Here are the amazing prizes which are on offer:
- First place: 10,000 Nintendo points.
- Second place: 6,000 Nintendo points.
- Third place: 3,000 Nintendo points.
This competition is only open to residents of Europe and Australasia - sadly, if you're anywhere else in the world then we can't accept your entries, although you're perfectly entitled to upload an animation regardless. Nintendo Life staff members are not allowed to enter. Multiple entries are allowed, so feel free to have as many goes as you like - the only limit is your imagination!
And possibly your talent (or lack of).
The closing date for this competition is Wednesday 19th August – 9PM GMT.
Ill post even though I wont enter!
I did the audio!
Not as popular as I thought it would be! Well heres some noise to add to the silence!
Awww man! I want to win some Nintendo points! It hardly seems fair considering it came to the US before europe.
Here's one I threw together.
My first try:
Here's my first one! I hope I've got the code thing right...
[ugomemo:5DE945701E407A4B:407A4B_0908F74B7329C_001] I cant win being an American. Maybe we can get an honorable mention?
here is my first try - "The Car & The Bird"
I don't have a DSi so I unfortunately can't enter. However while on the topic of Nintendo and animation.... here's one I prepared earlier:
Well? What do you think?
EDIT: Oops! I posted the wrong flipnote! I should've posted my comic strip! Here it is!
This will be the ONLY time I curse my US DSi
My (1st) entry: [flipnote:9FD3B3001E218FEE:218FEE_09092DC262AE5_000]
My first try.
(I'll make another one as well - I'll try to spell "manoeuvres" properly too)
I've made a good one, but it's a bit rude. Light nudity... should I avoid posting it?
@Gavin No rude animations please... think of the kids!
[flipnote:9610F10031D36D0236D02_0909300528018_000] And Another!
Damn, but it's just so... jiggly! I'd have won for sure
Entry number 2:
Mr. Apple (It taken ages)
Not too great, but I enjoyed creating it. I hope it gives you a nice, strange, 'WTF' feeling.
I have a question.
I just downloaded it and I dont have any wireless internet for the DSi.
Can I make a video a post the link in here?
Not anywhere near as good as my rude one, but here it is anyway:
Here's my entry! I'll add more, as I make them!
Thanks for telling me about this competition, Dazza! =]
mod edit: link dead - try adding the code again??
Here's my first go at it... I have absolutely no experience within animation, but I'm happy with it!
my newest flipnote
This isn't my awesome rude one, but I guess you could kind of class it as rude, I'm not sure... If it is then feel free to delete this post.
two more entries!! (They're not as popular as my first entry, yet >.<)
I think I can safely say you're all going to love my newest one
2nd entry from me:
Worked hours for it. hope you enjoy!
3rd entrie from me!

@legochesser: EPIC WIN!
@GonzoMontana: W00t! Thanks! ^^
Ps. My third one for this comp.! Enjoy!
haha @jangonov was good. But i feel @03beatob is the leader. This is amazing that this tool is for free. Nintendo will DSi numbers will be high
My 4th and 5th flipnotes:

I've currently got a more complicated one in the works, but i figured i might as well post my practice one for lols
OMG, dap594, much flipnotes!!!
BTW. Here an another one from me!
From America, so I can't enter
My first flipnote
From Italy here. : )
and a bonus one:
Hope you like them.
I'm trying out a new Flipnote series called "The Random Show". I have 2 episodes so far and will continue if they are popular enoungh. Even though I can't enter this contest, tell me what you think of them!
the one i will probably post tonight will probably be my best ever

So, that's mine :
From America- so this is an invalid entry.
mod edit: You needed to use square brackets! [ ...... ]
Here is my first Flipnote Animation : ]]!
I know it's pretty basic, but hey! Got to learn x D
So now I am making more advanced animations : ]
Allright I... Wait ...is only open to residents of Europe and Australasia ... Aw lol when good luck to any one who entered!
4th entry. ICE CREAM!
Here is mine e ven though im in america i like mine u might need to turn up the volume though so you can hear it [flipnote:54FD6C20CC783520:783520_09087B67625EA_003]
It's only my second flipnote but still: [flipnote:9E85E35031C89046:C89046_09097F01D59C8_007]
All the best to those who enter. Here's hoping we can have more contests where us folk in NA can participate. It's still great to see another great competition nonetheless.
And My most popular vid
My pet rock
Wish me luck...
The third installment of The Random Show for your enjoyment:
I wish I could enter, i won a local contest with mine...=(
my friend can make the most random flipnotes. there was major lag when i tried to see this. i hope those at NL wont have trouble seeing it all
@bboy I love the random show it's utter awesomeness keep it going... Me wants more.....
My first entry! [flipnote:9A67F3501E1D11D3:1D11D3_090984F60798E_002]
@zane: Thanks for the support! Episode 4 will be out soon. BTW, I love your flipnote! Very funny and runs smooth. Nice work!
I can't enter, since I'm in Canada, but here's an animation I threw together:
Good news! I had just enough time to get episode 4 of The Random Show finished. I hope you all like it. Episode 5 should be out within the next week or so and a new one every couple days from there. Tell me what you think!
So, here are my 2 new Flipnotes. The first is "Super Sticky Bros.". Herm. Yup.
The second flipnote is more... conceptual. You need to know a little bit of the Youtube Poop culture to understand it.
My first creation:
Hi everyone, been a long time reader and finally got the courage to join you guys! Hopefully it'll be a great chance to win some points or at least meet some new online buddies for Mario Kart!
I'd love to go through each entry and give my thoughts, but that'd take ages, so from what I did see (in around the first fourty posts), my favourites were the basketball one and the one where the tree appeared. Great work. Anyways, here's my first attempt, entitled "stuntman".
I did another funny flipnote! Here it is!
My second entry and if we can only have one entry my MAIN entry.
5 hours spent on this and it's only 585 frames long.
My second on. OK, here goes...
My second entry.
Here I go again ... hope you like it
This is my first flipnote I created.
It's pretty simple and I always finished a second one, but I have to do the sound before I can post.
Two more (simple again):
Had a ton of fun
Here's mine! Great contest idea!
I'll throw this one too for your entertainment. It's supposed to be a loop.
.I cant draw good
Here's my second entry: [flipnote:9E85E35031C89046:C89046_0909D5F3D598E_000]
I swear I posted this earlier...
I guess this is Europe's revenge...
My 1st post and 1st Flipnote
Well, I finally finished my main entry, enjoy
I think I'm uploading too much
Not an entry, but here are two of my animations.
My first Flipnote (just a try!):
And my second one:
So... good luck everybody!
My competition is starting to get tougher.Maybe some heartbreaking animations will give me the lead.
It's a loop by the way.
Here's my latest! Enjoy!
Sadly I'm in NA, so no chance for me. But who can resist posting!
Heres my best one!
Seems like a laugh, here's my first.
Here's my first submission...
this is my first flipnote:
An other one that I've just finished!
My third entry
I've got a second one in the works. It's fair to say I've worked a lot harder on this one than the 1st one so this would more likely be the one I'd win for if I win this competition. I'll have it posted tomorrow
Yet another, but this time I overdid myself ^^ please enjoy!
Phew! Hope you enjoy it, it took me days, haha! =P
My first entry.
Watch highlights of Munsters finest rugby team taking on the mighty All Blacks back on October 31st 1978. The only Irish team ever to have beaten them.

@Hannah: well done ... hope you win ...

Another, getting better. I suppose you don't mind multiple entries : P
My second entry
My only entry, this thing took way more time I thought it would take.
(for some reason, I'm not able to draw a normal Mario...)
I love this app. I"m on it everyday
Here's mine, based on my addiction to Wii Sports resort. Enjoy!
I decided to go the creative route with this one. Enjoy!
A really nice app.
5th and final entry. Good luck everyone!
@Manolito -Hopefully your entries will count even though you missed the deadline by 10 minutes. I liked them.
I have three looping flipnotes:
Damn... didn't notice the deadline.
Eer, this may not count but.....
Here is my entry:
PS: WHOA! This Site takes ages to load
An Xbox360 and Wii parody
How to draw G.W. Bush
I'm really artistically challenged, so for me, this is good. It's only 5 seconds long but it took me around 8 hours to make it...hopefully you've seen the show '24' before....
The contest is over, but I wanted to share this with you people anyway.
An apple a day beats the baddy aways
BTW the competition is not over as it says 9pm tonight not am
Here are my two entries. (By the way, this is my first comment here, but I read WWW and VCReviews for ages before they merged with NL. Does this make me a lurker?)
Space Battle (inspired by many scrolling shooters):
World of Goo Tribute:
Good luck to everyone else who's entered!
I've got 4 entries. All these entries are parts of different series (except the Ninja fight). Enjoy the flipnotes! Here they are:
Mario's Adventures - Part 1
Codename: S.H.I.T.* (* Supersonic Hydronamic Intergallactic Topagent)
Jack Action (Intro)
Thank you for watching and good luck everybody!
this has 988 frames
Behold, the Stickguy Trilogy!
Sadly when watching with a PC the sound is lagging behind. I recommend watching these with the DSi
I had two more to post, but the deadline has passed...
No it hasn't, it's at 9pm GMT, you just posted at a little after 7pm, so I hope you read this quickly
This is my last entry its good.
I have one more.
An alternative version (lol)
And just in case...
how do we know whos won?
The competition is now closed. We will announce the winner sometime tomorrow. Stay tuned!
I know it's all over.... But I'm from the ol' U.S. of A. anyways, so I'm out of the running. Just wanted to share. Thanks to everyone for all the awesome work!
I'm an idiot.I thought the time next to posts was displayed in 12 hour not 24 hour time. I probably had time to enter another animation.
Boy, I don't think I'm gonna win with all these new flipnotes...
