Beginning September 23rd and extending to October 5th, ASIFA-Hollywood is conducting the 41st Annual Annie Award Call for Nominating Committee Judges. If you are interested in being a committee judge, please fill out and submit the application you will find at http://members.asifa-hollywood.org/Judges/apply.
If you filled out a submission form last year, there is no need to submit another — you are still on the list. Filling out the application will put you on our list of nomination judge candidates, but will not guarantee you a committee position. However, if you are chosen, you must be prepared to spend a few hours in early November your committee’s submissions on-line and then, sometime between November 11th and 24th, you will meet with your committee in person for the final nominee selection. You, your fellow judges and your committee chair will determine when/where that meeting will take place.
To be considered for a nominating committee, judges must have an established career in animation and exemplary professional credentials in at least one of the Annie Award categories. Additionally, some judges will also be selected to participate in final jury procedures in late January, immediately following the general membership vote. As a token of our appreciation, all judges will receive two complementary VIP tickets (one per judge and one for a guest–non transferable) to the 41st Annual Annie Award ceremony at UCLA’s Royce Hall, on Saturday, February 1st, 2014.
