ASIFA-Hollywood announced its call for entries for the 39th annual Annie Awards. The awards, recognizing excellence in animation, are scheduled for Feb. 4, 2012 at UCLA’s Royce Hall in Los Angeles.
The 2011 Annie Awards will be presented in 28 categories, including two new categories added to the slate this year – outstanding editorial in an animated feature and outstanding editorial in an animated television production. A “members’ favorite” award has also been added, but will be on a separate ballot on the Annies website. While Annie voting is limited to professional members, all members, both professional and associate, will be able to vote on this award.
The deadline for submissions is Oct. 14. The deadline to join ASIFA-Hollywood or to renew membership in order to participate in the Annie Award voting is Nov. 4.
