Lace up your boots, do some stretching, get on your marks, get set and GO! It's time to participate in this month's Olympics AnimChallenge. This month, we want you to animate an Olympic event to celelbrate the upcoming 2024 Summer Olympics in Paris. To help you, the team at have created new skins for the Agora Original Characters (now also in Blender!). But be quick, these new skins will only be available for this month only!

There's plenty of reference footage available on the Official Olympics Youtube Channel. And if you'd like to see a full list of this year's events, we've listed them for you below!

Happy Animating!

How Do We Find Our Winners?

Our top three entries are determined by the number of likes each submission gets during the specified voting period. Each like is when the thumbs-up icon underneath the video player is hit. To be notified of when voting commences and ends, keep an eye on our social media platforms, or check the website for a banner underneath the menu that announces when voting has started.

In the case of a tie, the supervisors of Agora.Studio will declare the winning entry. For any of our special challenges where the major prize pool includes cash or exclusive prizes, the voting will be solely determined by the Agora.Studio supervisors.
