The International Animated Film Society, ASIFA-Hollywood, announced the Call for Entries today for the 42nd Annual Annie Awards. There are 36 categories this year, which include production, achievement and special juried awards. The submissions deadline is midnight, Monday, Nov. 5.
“A new category, best character animation in a video game, has been added this year,” said ASIFA-Hollywood executive director, Frank Gladstone. “Additionally, while most categories require that submissions must be from productions released in the United States between Jan. 1 and Dec. 31, 2014, exceptions are made for animated short subjects, student films and television commercials that may not have been released in the U.S. This year, we will add special productions to the list of category projects that do not have to have been released in the U.S., so long as the submitted project was released during 2014.”
The 42nd Annual Annie Awards will take place on Jan. 31 at UCLA’s Royce Hall in Los Angeles.
