British Animation Awards 2004 imminent

While it still has quite an old-school veneer, the vanguard of digital animation talent is starting to become increasingly represented in the shortlists for the British Animation Awards 2004. With artists such as Shynola, Chris Shepherd, Airside and assorted Nexus directors represented, the category shortlists showcase a wealth of breakthough talent.

The award night in London, taking place on March 19, is sold out, but the Website promises award results and DVD will be available.
