Please don’t use meme audio or unlicensed commercial music; any dialog should be an original recording and any music should come from a royalty-free source or the FNF soundtrack itself. 


I have a question about this rule. Can we only put a song like background music or it can be like the gameplay? For example, two characters singing a song from the game?

Many of you have likely noticed Friday Night Funkin’ is a huge hit, on its way to becoming the most popular game in the history of NG.

To celebrate, we’re hosting a Friday Night Funkin’ Animation Jam, with a $5K prize pool from the Funkin’ team (@ninjamuffin99, @PhantomArcade, @KawaiSprite, @evilsk8r) and over $1.25k from the community!

To participate, create an original animation in the world of Friday Night Funkin’. 

Rules:

You can include OC’s; there are popular mods out there and it could be cool to see those represented in some way.

It can’t be an animation you made previously, it needs to be made for the jam and include a Newgrounds.com watermark. Don’t have one? PhantomArcade has you covered!

Your entry should be uploaded to Newgrounds before Youtube or anywhere else.

“Newgrounds is and always will be the home of Friday Night Funkin, so the cartoon goes here first. Feel free to post it anywhere else even minutes later, but NG first baby. Friday Night Funkin is a Newgrounds game after all.” - Funkin’ Team

Please don’t use meme audio or unlicensed commercial music; any dialog should be an original recording and any music should come from a royalty-free source or the FNF soundtrack itself. 

There are no length requirements. Something too short might lack substance, something too long might become boring. Check out the Pet Jam entries for some good examples.

You’re welcome and encouraged to work in teams! If you’d like to join a team, make your interest known in this thread.

Include the “FunkinJam” tag on NG and #FunkinJamNG when posting on social (wips too!).

“If you break any of these rules, we’ll rip every inch of skin off your body, so thanks for playing nice!” -Funkin’ Crew

ok no meme audio, but can there be audio from an already existent video on the internet?

Response to Friday Night Funkin' Animation Jam! 2021-02-20 18:00:26


Are we allowed to remix or create unofficial music for our entries? For example: let’s say I add a DJ to make funky music while Boyfriend AND Girlfriend battling against 2 more people.


Never mind that . I don’t have any ideas.

Can the animation be in 3D?

Response to Friday Night Funkin' Animation Jam! 2021-02-20 22:01:18


Could something with only ocs be allowed in the animation? In the world of FnF of course

Response to Friday Night Funkin' Animation Jam! 2021-02-20 22:21:57


Can someone please give me a straight answer as to whether or not we can have other IPs in the FunkinJam? I just want to have characters from YGO Arc V in the fnf style battle to one of the songs and I don't want to start only to find out it isn't allowed
