“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 January 1, 2014 and December 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.”
Other than the excepted categories, entries submitted for consideration will be from productions that were released in the United States between January 1, 2014 and December 31, 2014. The deadline to join ASIFA-Hollywood or to renew membership, to become a Sponsor, and to submit entries and materials is midnight Monday, November 5, 2014.
