Want To Be A Judge? Something New Has been Added!

From August 24 and through October 2, ASIFA-Hollywood will be conducting the 43rd Annual Annie Award Call for Nominating Committee Judges.

Please note that the registration procedure has been simplified this year, but all judges, whether they have applied in the past or are enrolling for the first time, will need to submit a new application.

To be considered for a nominating committee, judge candidates must have an established career in animation and exemplary professional credentials in at least one of the Annie Award categories. If you are interested in being a nominating committee judge, please:

  • Log in to members.asifa-hollywood.org  — Click the link called “Judging Application.”
  • Fill out and submit the application.
  • Important: We are using a new, simplified form this year, so even if you have been on a judging roster in the past, we will not be able to integrate your old information with the new list. All prospective judges, both past applicants and new enrollees, MUST log in and register using the new application form.

You do not need to be an ASIFA-Hollywood member to be an Annie judge. If you fulfill the professional career and credential requirements and want to apply, but are not a member, please email votinghelp@annieawards.org and our team will facilitate this request for you.

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 chosen, you must be prepared to spend a few hours in early November looking at your committee’s submissions online and then, sometime between November 13 and 24, 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. Additionally, some judges may 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, non-transferable tickets (one per judge and one for a guest) to the 43rd Annual Annie Award ceremony at UCLA’s Royce Hall, on Saturday, February 6, 2016.
