motion 2016 marks our 10th anniversary and we’re going all out to make this year’s show our best ever

“It’s not often that people embark on a 100-day challenge prior to an event, but this year is special. motion 2016 marks our 10th anniversary and we’re going all out to make this year’s show our best ever,” states Becky Padilla, co-founder of the event.

“We’re challenging people to do something creative each day, for the next 100 days,” explains motion co-founder Elaine Montoya.

Last year, Creative Director, Greg Gunn challenged himself to create a different animated gif based on mythological creatures every week in 2015. The result? Mythical Mondays – featured on motion.tv –  were a great success.

Mike Winkelmann – better known as Beeple is an example of someone who has taken the concept of a creative challenge to the extreme. Years ago, he challenged himself to create something new each day. But here’s the kicker – he never set an end date! As of this writing, he is on day 3227!

We’re challenging people to do something creative each day, for the next 100 days

Today marks 100 days until motion 2016. Creatives are encouraged to participate by doing something creative each day for the next 100 days.

Whether you create something new each day like Beeple, explore a new medium for 100 days, compose a song a day, write 100 poems or draw 100 sketches – or a mix of all of the above – it’s totally up to you. As long as you…

Do something creative each day for the next 100 days.
