Even if you are a pro level member, you must also be approved to vote. To see if you’re already an approved voter, visit the ASIFA-Hollywood Website Login Page and sign in with your ASIFA-Hollywood membership account. If you have already applied, your approval status will be displayed on this page and, if you have been approved, you don’t have to do anything more. Your approval will continue for as long as you remain a member. If you find that you have not been approved, follow the instructions to submit your voting application. Include a resume or IMDB listing with your request.
Not every pro-member is approved. The general rule is that you must work in a production position and that your work, in some direct manner, effects the “images and sound on screen.” Even if, as a pro-member, you are not approved, you will remain on the studio mailing lists and receive screeners and other “for your consideration” materials.
If your voting approval has been declined, you may, at any time, petition for additional consideration by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. You must be an approved voter by November 6, 2015 to participate in Annie Award voting this year.
Associate members cannot vote for the Annies and, unless otherwise requested by a specific studio, are not included on the “for your consideration” mailing lists.
