INDUSTRY EXCELLENCE AWARDS

This award is for an individual person for their work in the fields of:

  • Scriptwriting
  • Storyboarding
  • Character Design
  • Character Animation

Only work on one project can be submitted per nomination. You may nominate another person as long as you have their permission. As scriptwriters we understand you often work in pairs and so two people can be under one nomination for scriptwriting. All collaborations will require a little clarification in the form. International nominations are accepted.

Nominations must be for one person working on a project that has been commissioned by a third party or broadcaster (television or online). It can not be a student film or have been commissioned as part of advancement in an academic qualification process, nor is it an independent project created without the input of any third party commissioner.
