Not only will you have a chance to win a $200 Stickybones gift card each week, but participating in the challenge also comes with other great benefits:

  • Boost your creativity: The challenge will encourage you to think outside the box and come up with unique poses.
  • Improve your posing and animation skills with this daily practice.
  • Join the community: Connect with other creatives and share your love of animation, art, and Stickybones! Learn from others by viewing their poses.
  • Increased mindfulness: The focus required during the art of posing Stickybones can keep you mindful and present in the current moment.
  • Fun and enjoyment: Enough said!



  • Do I need to have a Stickybones figure to participate in the challenge? Yes, the human figure(s) used in Pose-A-Palooza must be Stickybones.
  • Do I need to post my pose on Instagram to participate in the challenge? Yes.
  • What if I miss a day of the challenge? If you post it before the end of the weekly deadline, you can still be eligible for the weekly prize.
  • Can I use other materials besides Stickybones to create my pose? Yes, props and clothes are fine to use along with your Stickybones figure. You can get as detailed as you want, or you can keep it simple. Up to you!
  • Can I do the prompts out of order? As long as you post all 5 poses for the week by the weekly deadline, you can change the order, but only if they're all within the same week.
  • Can I use more than one Stickybones figure? Yes!
  • Can I use any color Stickybones? Yes!
  • Do I need to complete all 5 prompts or just choose one? All prompts for the week must be completed to be eligible for that week's prize.
  • Do the posts and poses need to be Arizona or desert-themed? No, just let the prompt inspire you how you see fit.
  • Do I need to complete every single week? No, you can do one week or all weeks, or anything in between. (Hint: there might be a special raffle for those who complete all 4 weeks.)
  • How will the winners of the gift card be selected? Each week's winner will be chosen by an esteemed guest judge from the animation community based on the following criteria:
    • Overall Pose (70%): Appeal, Clarity, Emotion, Spirit of the Prompt.
    • Overall Image Appeal (30%): Background Setting, Composition, Creativity, Effort & Execution.
  • When will the winners be announced? The weekly winners will be announced on Instagram at the end of each week and will be issued a $200 Stickybones gift card.
  • How can I connect with other participants in the challenge? We encourage you to click on the hashtag #poseapalooza2024 and interact with the other participants!
  • Can I participate if I'm not a professional artist or animator? Yes! Pose-A-Palooza is open to anyone with a Stickybones figure! It's about fun, skill development, and community connection!
  • Can I still participate if I don't have an Instagram account? To be eligible for the $200 gift cards, you must submit your poses through Instagram. So, to be blunt—no.
  • Do I have to use the official prompts to participate? Yes.
  • Can I use other human figures or toys instead of Stickybones to participate in the challenge? No.
  • Can I share my poses on other social media platforms besides Instagram? Sure! But remember the official Pose-A-Palooza is on Instagram, so poses must be posted there to be eligible for prizes.
