Got a knack for art? Do you enjoy the Zelda series? If so, this is the post for you!

[youtube][/youtube]If you haven’t heard, this year marks the 25th anniversary for everyone’s favorite green hero, and Nintendo is celebrating by holding a rather awesome contest for any of the artists out there. Do you own a DSi? Can you create art that doesn’t look like an easel exploded? Then boy do I have news for you.

Nintendo has just launched an official Zelda Flipnote site and are asking fans for their best creations celebrating their favorite scenes and characters from the franchise. Entries must be submitted by September 9, and must be at least 20 seconds in length.

What do you win for creating such awesome art? After careful review, the winning flipnotes will be selected to be commented on by The Legend of Zelda creators and published on the Nintendo website. Not too shabby!

So what are you waiting for? Start animating!
