The British Animation Awards has launched a call for entries to the UK's most prestigious accolades in animation production.
Held every two years, the British Animation Awards 2010 will take place in London on April 8th 2010. The evening celebrates and recognises British animation talent, with previous winners including Nick Park and Tim Burton.
The categories for 2010 include Best Animated Special, Best Children's Pre-school Series, Best Children's Series, Best Music Video, Best Commercial Craft, Best Commercial: Director, Best Film/TV Graphics, Best Short Film, Best European Feature, Best Sound Design and New Media: Best Commissioned Animation.
In addition, there will be a Children's Choice Award - chosen by a panel of kids from finalists in the children's category - and a Public Choice, which is voted for by cinema-goers across the country.
"The UK is a hot bed of animation talent and we can't wait for the 2010 entries to flood in and make our judging job one of the most difficult, but enjoyable, around," said BAA director Jayne Pilling.
The deadline for entries is November 30th 2009.
