The University of Manchester has announced the application process for its annual UK Schools Computer Animation Competition, which benefits young people aged seven to 19 years old.

Those who are selected as winners will have their submissions on display next July during an animation festival hosted at the Manchester Museum of Science and Industry. Also, honorees will receive digital cameras, laptops and MP3 players.

Contest participants are asked to create a one-minute animated film, using software programs including Adobe Flash, Alice, Scratch and Serif.

Toby Howard, faculty member of computer science at the university, stated that "we need to encourage the brightest and the best of the next generation to engage in the challenges facing computing - not just to use computers, but to invent the next generation of hardware and software." He added that "we hope this competition will help raise the profile of computer science amongst children in a fun and exciting way."

April 1 is the last day films will be accepted, and the winners will be announced in May.

According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the employment of graphic designers, including computer animation professionals, is projected to increase by 13 percent, and that growth will create an estimated 36,900 new jobs nationwide.
