Words That Describe Action GIF Contest – $200


Project ED knows that video isn’t the only way to communicate a strong message and is announcing their “Words That Describe Action” GIF contest. This might be the first time we’ve ever heard of a contest to create an animated GIF and we couldn’t be more excited! Why? Because GIF’s are so simple and to the point. As a short looping series of images that can be hilarious or thought provoking, they are definitely (for the purposes of this contest) an easy way to score some cash.

To enter, you must first select one of the following words from the contest page: initially, retroactively, feebly, wearily, brusquely, obstinately, leisurely, ironically, and fervently. After that, it’s up to you to create a completely original GIF that conveys the meaning of the word (be sure you only use one). You must be sure to display the word, part of speech, definition, in your GIF. Check out the sample below.


GIF’s will be judged based on the following criteria:

  • Educational merit and accuracy: Your submission achieves the educational goals presented in the contest brief and viewers learn intended material from your video.
  • Creativity and Engagement: Your submission presents educational content in an artistic and innovative way.
  • Appropriate content: Your submission does not contain indecent, obscene, hateful, defamatory, or offensive material.
  • In the event of a tie, the tie will be broken on the basis of the tied entrants’ scores in the “Educational merit and accuracy” criteria.

Project ED is paying out $200 to the top GIF along with $50 for finalists. Check out a GIF tutorial below to see how easy it is to get started. Good luck!
