BURBANK, Calif. (August 11, 2021) – ASIFA-Hollywood has announced its ‘Call for Judges’ for the 49th Annie Awards™. Applicants must have an established career in animation and exemplary professional credentials in at least one of the Annie Award categories. Individuals in the animation community who are interested in being a nomination committee judge, visit the Application page. If you fulfill the professional career and credential requirements we invite you to apply. The nomination process remains a significant and fundamental part of assuring that the Annie election process is fair and representative.
Annie Judge candidates do not have to be members of ASIFA-Hollywood but, whether they have applied in the past or are applying for the first time, need to submit a new application. Filling out the application will put you on our list of nomination judge candidates, but will not guarantee you a committee position. If, however, you are selected, you must be prepared to spend a few hours in November, reviewing your committee’s submissions online and then meeting with your committee in person or online for the final nominee selection. You, your fellow judges and your committee chair will determine when that meeting will take place.
In our increasing efforts to include under-represented members of our community, we are also reaching out to animation organizations including, among others, Women In Animation, Black N’ Animated, LXiA (LatinX in Animation) and the Native American Barcid Foundation.
Call for Judges Application deadline is September 21, 2021.
All other important dates, details and the 48th Annie Awards™ Rules are located on the official Annie Awards™ website – www.annieawards.org
