VES introduces new award category

The Visual Effects Society (VES) have introduced a new category, Outstanding Effects in an Animated Motion Picture, to their lineup of awards scheduled to be given out at the 6th Annual VES Awards on February 10, 2008.

I think this is a good move. There’s a whole bunch of effects work in animated movies which, up to now, have been totally ignored as far as VES awards eligibility goes - the only animated movie category has been the very unrelated Outstanding Animated Character in an Animated Motion Picture.

Submissions for the new category are accepted (along with all of the others) as of today and will run until early december.

Read more about it at the VES Awards site.
