SHORT was a monthly brickfilming contest on the Polish brickfilming website WMBF. A new theme was announced at the start of each month. Ten editions were run between October 2012 and July 2013.

History Edit

The inspiration for SHORT arose from "TheGibek777" suggesting that WMBF run a Halloween competition. This inspired Paweł Kamiński to come up with the idea of a series of mini-contests each with a different film genre as a theme, and he then came up with the SHORT title and designed the graphics. The SHORT forum thread was posted by "TheGibek777", and he and Kamiński collaborated on deciding the themes. Entries were required to have at least 10 seconds of original footage, and there was no upper time limit.[1] The first place winner of each SHORT contest became the judge of the next one, and had their film displayed on the front page of WMBF for a month. If a person was to win SHORT six times in one year, they would have become a moderator on WMBF. Winners were also given a forum signature image which could be expanded upon to display all their SHORT wins. Maciek Klimczak and "CrazyEd" were thanked for 3D rendering the SHORT logo based on Kamiński's concept art. The signature system[2] was designed and implemented by Paweł Kamiński. SHORT was no longer held after the tenth edition received no entries.
