Due January 15th, 2020 - Produce a :10 or :15 short animated video that cleverly brings the SYFY logo to life in a way that celebrates badass women in genre in honor of Women's History Month in March.

Since SYFY is the network for genre fans, they pretty much live and breathe everything genre, no matter what genre we're talking about – science fiction, fantasy, comic book, horror, or some awesome mash-up. In that spirit, for the last year or so, SYFY has been been working with genre fans on a monthly initiative where artists, animators, designers, and directors are given the chance to bring the SYFY logo to life in a series of artistic and incredibly cool TV spots.

This month, it's all about the ladies! In honor of Women's History Month, SYFY wants to showcase badass female characters from a range of different genres. And let's be real: this does not mean they're looking for a bunch of witches and mermaids. Think about Lara Croft, Furiosa, Ellen Ripley, Trinity, Leeloo Dallas, Katniss Everdeen, Arwen Evenstar, Number Six, Jessica Jones, Wonder Woman, and the endless number of women like them. Pay tribute to the powerful roles and archetypes that exist in different genres, embrace the themes they reflect, and remember - you can't actually use any of these characters: you need to do something original that reflects what they stand for.

The goal is to end up with a stylish and highly visual TV spot that will bring the SYFY logo to life in an unexpected way, transforming the SYFY logo, or revealing it, in the process. This is not about a "narrative" so much as it is about creating a fun way to set up and subvert audience expectations.
