EASTER (backronymed to stand for Enjoy A Short Transient Event Right-away) is an annual brickfilming competition. Participants must create an Easter themed brickfilm with the duration of 15 or 20 seconds (depending on the host) within a given time limit, which is usually about two weeks. Originally hosted on Brickfilms.com in 2007 by Richard Frost, EASTER is now officially hosted on the website Bricks in Motion. The current host of the contest is Shelby Pritchard.
E.A.S.T.E.R. Festival Edit
The original EASTER brickfilming contest was called E.A.S.T.E.R. Festival, and was hosted on Brickfilms.com in 2007 by Richard Frost, the Minister of Film Contests at the time. The competition duration was from February 18th to April 10th. Entries were required to be 15 seconds or under.
16 of the 20 entries successfully followed the rules and qualified and were judged by a popular vote. Participants were required to vote on another person's film or they would be disqualified from the contest. There were also additional ballots submitted by site staff members Tim Hui, Michael J. Green, Nathan Wells and Philip Heinrich. This is the only edition of the contest to emphasise the top five rather than the top three.

31 entries were received with no disqualifications and were judged by a poll, with voting open to contest entrants and Bricks in Motion staff members.

The 10 Bricks of EASTER 2020 Edit
EASTER 2020 was hosted by Shelby Pritchard, returning from EASTER 2013. This edition of the contest transitioned EASTER away from being a 20-second film contest, and instead introduced a different challenge. "The 10 Bricks of EASTER" revived the challenge from the 2004 10 Brick Contest: entries were only allowed to make use of 10 bricks (or other elements) total (with a floor and simple backdrop not being included in the element count). The contest was sponsored by Minifig Madness, who provided each winner with a custom printed minifigure featuring the Bricks in Motion logo printed on the torso. The contest occurred from March 28 to April 11, and the judging panel consisted of Pritchard, Chris Major, and Seán Willis. 28 acccepted entries were received.
