The annual national education animation competition, N.E.mation!, changed its participating requirements from producing animations to storyboarding instead. The new format attracted 1064 entries, a 40% increase from last year. The competition is organised by Nexus, the department responsible for Total Defence and National Education in the Ministry of Defence. The N.E.mation! open house was held at the Singapore Discovery Centre yesterday, with the top three student category teams and top nine youth category teams presenting their work and ideas behind it. The competition entered its 15th edition this year and was themed "Together We Keep Singapore Strong". Varsha from Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts is pictured representing her team, which will compete for the championship of the competition this year.
