“Taking over the BAAs from the founding director Jayne Pilling has been a formidable task,” commented newly appointed BAA director, Helen Brunsdon. “I’d like to thank her on behalf of all for her amazing legacy with the BAAs. We are working hard to continue and develop the BAAs which are a firm fixture in the UK animation calendar. We urge animators and producers in every part of the UK to get their submissions in before the deadline at the end of November. I hope the BAAs in 2020 will offer the animation industry a warm glow of respect and support that we all need from time to time.”

The BAAs sheep-themed awards are unique works of art from some of the most respected artists and animators.
