Changes to This Year's Rules

  1. The category of Animated Effects in a Live Action Production has been omitted.

  2. In the Character Animation in an Animated Television/Broadcast Production and Character Animation in an Animated Feature Production categories, both individual and team submissions are now eligible.

  3. Until such time as Virtual Reality (VR) projects are released as theatrical features, VR projects shall henceforth be considered, depending upon length and project intention, as either Short Subject or Special Project submissions in Production categories, and as Television/Broadcast submissions in Achievement categories. Special options for VR submissions will be noted in Mechanical Requirements for Submission, as well as within the submissions interface.

  4. Submission fees are $125 per submission. (Student Award submission fees remain $25.)
