The Annie Awards have long been recognizing pioneers at the forefront of animation, through nominations, juried awards, and certificates of merit. In 1972, legendary voice actor June Foray organized the very first Annie Awards. Today, supported by major animation studios and production companies, The Annie Awards have grown into a much-heralded industry event and are considered an important industry benchmark and a predictor of the Academy Award for Best Animated Feature.

ASIFA is the French acronym for L’Association Internationale du Film D’ Animation (International Animated Film Association), an organization founded in 1957 in France by a group of professional animators and chartered by UNESCO in 1960 to encourage the art of animation and further international understanding and goodwill through the animation medium. Today, there are ASIFA chapters in nearly thirty countries worldwide.
