Asifa-Hollywood Announces Annie Awards “Call For Entries”

Asifa-Hollywood Announces Annie Awards "Call For Entries"

The International Animated Film Society,
ASIFA-Hollywood, announced its ‘Call for Entries’ for the 41st Annual Annie
Awards to begin Tuesday, September 3. Step-by-step instructions are located at submissions.annieawards.org 
and are entirely on-line again this year. A complete list of Rules and Categories can
be found on the Annie Awards website – www.annieawards.org
— along with up-to-the-minute updates and information about the ceremony. Deadline
to submit entries and materials is midnight Monday, November 4th.  The 41st Annual Annie Awards ceremony is set
for Saturday, February 1, 2014 at UCLA’s Royce Hall in Los Angeles.

            “In an effort to simplify the entry process, we’ve
combined a few things that are due on November 4,” said ASIFA-Hollywood
President, Frank Gladstone.  “Along with entries and materials, you’ll need to be a current
member, renew your membership or join ASIFA-Hollywood by this date to
participate in the Annie Award voting.” There are also new guidelines for
sponsors, Gladstone explained. “Studio sponsorship contracts will also have to
be in by the November 4th deadline and sponsors will not be able to take advantage of
their entry benefits until their sponsor contract has been recorded. While you
still need to be a professional member of ASIFA-Hollywood to submit, each
sponsoring studio will also be asked to provide us with a list of designated
submitters from their studio group. Finally, there will be no ‘retroactive
discounts’ for entries that a non-sponsor has initially paid for, who then
becomes a sponsor after the fact,” said Gladstone.

               “Of course,” added Gladstone, “we continue to welcome independent entries and
look forward to even more individual submissions this year.”

        
Entries submitted for consideration will be from productions that were released
in the United States between January 1, 2013 and December 31, 2013.  The
deadline to join ASIFA-Hollywood or to renew membership, to become a Sponsor,
and to submit entries and materials is midnight Monday, November 4th, 2013.

I wonder . . . . . . is there a way this year the Annies could not be a ratings contest? There's good stuff every year, but there are so many things that really impress me that don't get many or any nominations (like Motorcity). I know some networks that air a lot of animation sponsor(?) the Annies, so do they have some control over the nominees? I feel like the nominations tend to be a bit more biased towards children's shows (other than when the category is children/preschool etc.).
