"Many of you know that NewGrounds is one of the major Flash portals online. It has been going as long as the internet itself (or it at least feels that way) and along with it just hosting all things Flash it also holds an annual animation tournament.
The NATA (NewGrounds Annual Tournament of Animation) is the latest incarnation of its annual event that encourages animators to develop an animation under pressure. It truly is a great way to get the community involved and it fosters creativity which is great news for all." - Alex Wilkinson
