MANiiFEST was a brickfilming competition hosted by Ben Young on Bricks in Motion in 2022. It was the twelfth official Bricks in Motion summer contest, and was a second iteration of Young's MANiFEST contest, following the first from 2021. As with the first one, the aim of the contest was to encourage experimentation in brickfilming, with greater freedom than the average brickfilm contest, and with entrants encouraged to consider styles or combinations of mediums that are not commonly seen in brickfilming. The contest was announced via a narrative-based video featuring Ben Young, Chris Wynn, Seán Willis, and Lucas Mass together in person. The contest received 38 accepted entries; the most ever to a Bricks in Motion summer contest.[1] The following BiM summer contest was The Genre Games in 2023.

Judging and prizes[]

The contest was judged by a panel consisting of Seán Willis, William Osborne, Lucas Mass, "Edbound", Thomas Evans, and Ben Young. Like the preceding Bricks in Motion Summer contests, no formal set of judging criteria were used, but consideration was given to overall creativity, originality, and interpretation of the contest's theme and spirit.[2]

Prizes were awarded to the top three placing entrants, in a prize pool format. The three prizes available are a copy of Dragonframe 5 including Bluetooth controller, a Brickstuff Pico LED light board starter kit, and the LEGO set 71374 Nintendo Entertainment System.

I certainly wouldn't claim this to be the longest brickfilm title on record, as no doubt something truly absurd exists, but it really is quite the run on sentence and might just manage the highest title to video length ratio at a stretch, I mean, you never know...
