Reference links to help ASIFA voters make more informed decisions.

As a way of helping ASIFA members make more informed decisions for this year's Annie Awards, AWN has created this reference and resource list for all the nominated properties. Where information was available, we have linked to official websites, including trailers, clips and pictures. We've also linked to any feature articles we've written within Animation World Magazine or VFXWorld.

Below is a list of the nominees by category. Page two lists all the nominees in alphabetical order. If you have any links that you feel should be added, please send them right away to editor@awn.com.
