To All the Aspiring Animators, Graphic Design Students, and Up-And-Coming Filmmakers out there:

We at the Tapscott Group are in need of talented, creative individuals to create a 90-to-120 second animation video on the influence of Blockchain technology on the music industry, to help the music industry move to a new model where musicians get compensated for their work.

Don Tapscott (C.M., CEO of the Tapscott Group, Ranked 4th by Thinkers50) and his son Alex Tapscott (CEO of Northwest Passage Ventures) are coming out with a true father-son collaboration, penning the book: Blockchain Revolution: How the technology behind bitcoin is changing money, business, and the world for release on May 10. The technology likely to have the greatest impact on the future of the world economy has arrived, and it’s not self-driving cars, solar energy, or artificial intelligence.

And we need your help.

We’ve created an open competition for new animators and filmmakers to show us what they’ve got, with some high stakes. You could win $200 in prize money, a Kindle Fire Tablet, a chance to network with 500 of Canada’s top executives at the book launch in Toronto, and the potential for further work – all while widening your portfolio. It is with great pleasure that we share this opportunity with you to help musicians reinvent the music industry.

Below you will find the contest brief and the style guide, both of which will be needed to complete the Blockchain challenge. Note that Submissions are due April 10th at 11:59PM EST, and should be submitted via Dropbox link to
