Since launching in 2013, GIPHY has strived to look at the past, present, and future of the GIF medium and showcase the creators who have pushed the limits and defined new styles within it. GIPHY is now looking to the future–the future of entertainment itself–and believes an important part of this will be micro-entertainment. 

We invite creators from all backgrounds and styles to explore this idea and help pave the path for the future. Can you compel an audience with an engaging story in under 18 seconds?
