Friday 18th November 2011: The Â British Animation Awards has today launched its final call for entries to the UK’s most prestigious awards in animation production and announced the search for the Favourite Ever British Animated Character of all time.
There are several new categories including the WOW! award for inspirational use of animation, Best Mixed Media Children’s Series, a BAA Sting Competition and increased commercial categories with separate awards now on offer for 2D, 3D and stop motion.
Given the current debate about the future of animation production in the UK this year BAA is running an online poll and discussion forum to determine the UK’s Favourite Ever British Animated Character of all time. To celebrate the rich heritage of notable and well-loved animated characters in this country, BAA is asking for nominations across TV, online and advertising for consideration for their shortlist which will be voted for by the public in the New Year. The winner will be announced at next year’s British Animation Awards ceremony.
