Design Brief

In this brand new 3D design competition, we've teamed up with WildBrain to bring you something completely different! WildBrain operate a multi-platform kids video network and produce original content for YouTube, working with companies to make exciting early learning animations for children. The team at WildBrain manage hundreds of popular brands on YouTube, including Teletubbies, Caillou, Johnny Test, In the Night Garden, Twirlywoos and many more. Now, WildBrain is looking to the MyMiniFactory community to come up with brilliant new early learning characters!

We want to you to use your 3D design skills to create a new character, or group of characters, that could be used as the stars of a new WildBrain production. Your characters will need to be 3D printable, as they will be bought to life both on and off screen.

The characters you create need to be suitable for an early learning show, targeted at children aged 3-5 years, so think simple, colourful and exciting. The winning design will walk away with $500, as well as the amazing opportunity to have your work featured in an original children's animation created and produced by WildBrain. Please make sure to read the full rules here before entering. Good luck!

Please note: this competition is only open to participants from the US, Canada and the UK. Based on response WildBrain will look to open this to the rest of the world in future.
