NATA 2013 Fundraiser Feb. 12th, 2013 @ 11:00 AM Reply

The Newgrounds Annual Tournament of Animation is approaching and in addition to prizes provided by NG and Adobe, we are having an indiegogo fundraiser!

The fundraising goal is currently $2000 although there are stretch goals if we can beat that. A portion of the money will cover pledge gifts and contest expenses, while the rest will be added to the prize pool!

Check out the NATA fundtraising page. Pledge gifts include DVDs, calendars and even the ability to choose a theme for one of the rounds!

If you missed it last year, check out NATA 2012 to get a feel for how this competition works. We expect this year to be BIG!

Sounds great! I don't think I'll be able to participate in the fundraiser, though, I hope it meets its targets.

You know what would be a great perk? A badge displayed under the 'Gear' part of your profile, like the Supporter badge but without purpose, just to show that you've contributed. The current perks don't seem to have any lasting effects on this site. I'd contribute if it was available (at a reasonable price of course). ;)

Seems like I missed last years grand event btw, looking forward to this one.

Super-hyped about this one... I can't wait to see how all the extra fields of competition will play out.

Good to see we have a couple donors already, keep them coming! I think we could probably do the badge for the $5 donation. I'll see what Tom thinks.

The animation is by Emrox. The writing and voicing is by myself.

Spread the word!!

Seeing how it is named the Newgrounds Annual Tournament of Animation, I imagine it will win.

Yes, the lengthy 6-round structure last year was far too much for animators. By the time the finalists got to the final round, they were burned out.

I have a suggesting on how to judge NATA...

Wouldn't it be best to have EVERYONE animate every round? That way, the most points at the end total wins. More content and more of a challenge if you have everyone against each other every round.

This has been suggested before, and while it would make for a good contest, it wouldn't be a bracketed tournament any longer. One of the major draws of NATA is to see "who is better than who" when compared side by side. It's one of the reasons people enjoy the playoffs in major sports so much - guessing and seeing who beats who in each round. :)
