No doubt helped along by strong ties to Google, Nintendo has been making integrated YouTube uploads a key part of some Wii U games. The option is particularly neat in Art Academy: Home Studio - Art Academy: Atelier in Europe - as uploads consist of time-lapse animations of your masterpieces.

We're big fans of Home Studio, and those that are enjoying the app in North America have a chance to gain a little bit of fame and eShop credit with a contest that's been opened in the region. If you're at least 18 and share your YouTube uploads by tweeting them with the hashtags #ContestEntry and #NintendoArtContest between now and 20th August, you could have your creation shared on Nintendo's social media channels. There are also $20 eShop cards up for grabs.

If you're actively using the app anyway this is certainly worth a look; check out the video below for the full details.
