BFX Competitions

5 creative competitions took place as a part of BFX 2023 – explore below

The BFX Festival hosts multiple annual competitions. Creatives can work as teams or individually on various briefs set by Bournemouth University’s National Centre for Computer Animation or charities.

Some competitions are available for anyone studying in Higher Education to enter and some are exclusively for BU students. Prizes vary each year; winners have previously received Amazon vouchers or Wacom tablets.

The BFX Competition supports local and national charities and takes place from Spring through Summer, with final submissions being used in the charity’s digital marketing campaigns.

Our Easter Jam competition is run in partnership with BU’s Animation Society and takes place in the Spring.

In-festival Competitions happen annually during the BFX Festival and include the BFX Game Jam, Caricature Competition, Sculpting Competition, and 2023 hosted the inaugural Winter Animation Jam.
