While awards season is a wee bit off, the nomination season has just begun!
Learn more about a new category announced this year for the British Animation Awards.
It all started with a comment on the blog and away we went!
British Animation Awards 2008
Gulsen Yanik, British Animation Awards producer, contacted me with news about the British Animation Awards new category for Best Character Voice Performance in an animated film.
The category was created along with New Media: Best Animation and New Media: Best Commissioned Animation, focusing on internet and downloadable animation.
The Sound Company, sponsor of the category, helped promote the new category as well as sponsor it.
What's Going On?
The nomination deadline of November 30th, 2007. The organization is headquartered in London, UK.
Each category has three finalists, so that means three fortunate nominees will get to shine in the voice performance category when the judging commences.
Maybe you could be one of them!
Details for Nominations
British-made animated films produced in 2006 or 2007 are eligible. Each production entered requires a separate entry form and VHS(Pal) preview tape or DVD.
