Animation Generation 2012

Animation Generation 2012 was a drawing contest for The Amazing World of Gumball. It was held in and sponsored by Cartoon Network South Africa.


The Animation Generation contest required learners residing in South Africa between six to fourteen years to draw a new original character for The Amazing World of Gumball, in a colorful poster design. The poster design had to include not just the new character, but also to include an existing character from the TV show. The closing deadline for entries was on September 3rd, 2012.

The top three entries, each of highest quality and from each of the age groups (6-8 years, 9-11 years, and 12-14 years), were displayed on Cartoon Network, throughout South Africa and internationally. In addition, the top three learners from the age groups and the school with the highest quality entries (overall winning school) would receive prizes for them and their school:
