How to make a GIF

A GIF is a moving image that is created by superimposing several individual images. This file format supports static and animated images. Unlike a video, a GIF is much shorter. For this competition the GIFs should have a minimum lenght of 3 seconds and a maximum length of 10 seconds. You can create animated GIFs from videos, photos, illustrations and other images in Photoshop and other online tools. You haven’t created a GIF yet? You will find tutorials, tools and many examples of different GIF styles online.
