I think that the previous winner should host the next challenge.

I think it would be cool to have a contest to see who can model the coolest album cover.

basically, you find an album cover you like

(http://sleevage.com/wp-content/uploads/2007/08/keane_under_the_iron_sun.jpg) for example

and making it 3d

I always thought that would be pretty interesting.

i like this idea best so far

i just watched this freerunning competition on tv. if you dont know what free running is you should google it because its actually pretty cool.

my challenge suggestion is have some kind of course and have a rigged character availible. the challenge would be a timed session.  the judging categories would be on reaslism style and overall "coolness" of the animation. i think this would be a fun way to use bone animation. everyone would be in the same direction but would have complete freedom over it.

Do you mean everyone gets the same character and the same course (as a download) and it will be pure about the animation.

If so, it could get real interesting, especially when it's really only about animating and even the boning is done and it pure and only about the animation.

Another idea: Voiceover

Everybody is given the same voiceover track and has to create an animation to go along with it...

Good idea?

I like Ratticis idea of doing something traditional; pirates, wild west etc. and give everyone the freedom to come up with something.

Yep, just one word and for the rest of it everyone could use his own imagination, e.g. one object, a small scene or even a big scene. Though, it'll be hard to compare 1 object with a whole scene.

My idea is to make something for Steve, like "Happy New Year Steve".
It could be a still render or an animation (a greetings card, animated or not), made only with Anim8or.
I think we don't need a winner for this one, just make somethink to thanks the creator of this great software and show how it is already powerfull.

If we do something like that though we should use PM's so that he doesn't know what we are doing...

Just another idea that popped into my head: Blur

Competition for the best / most creative use of focal or another type of blur effect.

Of course the blur would probably have to be done post production, and a scene made in anim8or

Take a picture of something - Anything - and try to make it look as close as possible. The best wins - must show progress from Anim8or.
