Industry News  |  12 September 2023

The 2024 British Animation Awards (BAAs) will feature a new major category for Best International Animated Series.

The British Animation Awards (BAAs) officially open for entries at midday on 12 September with the announcement of an exciting new category for Best International Animated Series. In another move that reflects the growth in longer formats, there will be separate awards for Best Long Form Animation and Best Feature Film.

The BAAs are delighted to return in 2024 to celebrate and showcase the outstanding achievements the UK industry has created over the last couple of years. By introducing the new Best International Animated Series category, we recognise the great collaborations of co-productions and partnerships between UK producers and international studios.
