The British Animation Awards have announced the five finalists for the brand new category for the 2020 awards, recognising rising stars working in the animation industry.
Five nominees have been announced for the inaugural LAMB Award at the 2020 British Animation Awards. This new award, sponsored by Disney and introduced under the stewardship of new BAA Director Helen Brunsdon bridges the gap between current categories that recognise student achievements and general best-in-class awards, and is open to any young professionals working in the animation and VFX industry.
The entrants were judged by a panel of experts and the winner will be announced on the 12th of March at the 13th edition of the biennial event, which is being held at the BFI in London and hosted by comedian Miles Jupp.
Each candidate was nominated by a UK Studio and required to have over 12 months but under 5 years experience and demonstrate great future potential. A strong track record of work so far helped with the assessments.
The nominees are:
Rory Hunter nominated by Fonic
Katie Gascoyne nominated by Blue Zoo Animation Studio
Roxannah (Roxi) Linklater nominated by Aardman
Kadesha Drija nominated by Cloth Cat Animation
Corinne Ladeinde nominated by NERD Productions
Congratulations to all the nominees, and good luck!
