Sure, but you should add a comment telling the entrant that you gave the 
animation e.g. a bad technical score because of poor lip-syncing, and 
not because "it relied on a soundtrack"...

IHMO lip syncing and animating talking faces is an interesting and funny 
topic (and clearly belongs to "animation"). It's a bit hard to do 
without sound though... ;-)
