Animation Source Choice Awards

Each year, Animation Source hosts an awards show honouring the best in animation from the previous year. This year, we will honour the best in animation from 2013, a wonderful year that included films such as Frozen, Despicable Me 2, and many others! The way the ASCAs work is this: you, the members of Animation Source, look at the list below, choose your favorites, and send Skulblaka_Shur’tugal a PM with your picks!


2013 was a huge year for animation, and now it’s up to you to decide what’s the best! Click the link below to view the list of those eligible for the Animation Source Choice Awards.

Introducing the THIRD Animation Source Choice Awards

3rd ASCAs

It’s back!

The Animation Source Choice Awards (ASCA), not to be confused with the Animation Source Awards, which honour members of Animation Source and has been discontinued permanently, honour the best in animation from the previous year. The first year Animation Source hosted the awards, 157 people voted, and the winner of Best Picture was Rio. Last year, however, less than 20 people voted altogether, and it was decided that the awards should be cancelled. However, enough people have expressed interest in voting this time around, so it has been decided to give it another go.


The official section of the website for the ASCAs goes in-depth about all the information about the show, and past winners, but here’s a short summary: You, the members of Animation Source, can vote for your favorites from the previous year (in this case, you will vote for the animation from 2013), and the votes are counted up and a winner announced.

Second ASCAs – Begin!

Happy New Year, everyone! We’ve made it through a year of apocolypses, zombies, and gigantic mailboxes, and now it’s time to usher in 2013. What better way to kick off a new year on Animation Source, than with the 2nd Annual Animation Source Choice Awards!


Last year’s ASCAs were a huge success. Over 150 people voted in the event! The largest winner was Rio, which took home 11 awards, including Best Picture. This year, we have quite the list of nominees eligible for each award; over 20 animated films were released in 2012!


This year, we’re doing thing a little different. Instead of all the votes being tallied by one person, I have asked for several people to help collect the votes. I will give you their names in a little bit, but first we need to go over the rules. (Which, be honest, should be the first thing people read no matter what the occasion.)

Help Needed for the Second Animation Source Choice Awards

Hi, everyone. You may remember earlier this year, when the 1st Animation Source Choice Awards was held. Well, it’s time to start getting ready for the 2nd ASCA’s, and this year I’m looking for YOUR help!

The way the Animation Source Choice Awards works is like this. Each year, several animated movies are released in theaters around the world. I count them up, and decide which films are eligible for which categories in the awards; the categories are set up like the Academy Awards, so there are, for exmaple, Best Picture and Best Animation. (22 in total.)

For the first half of January, YOU, the members of Animation Source, will narrow the list down to the actual nominees, and during the last half of January, YOU will get to decide who the winners are in each category.

But I cannot run this alone. I did last year and, believe me, it was a LOT of work. So I’m asking for as much help as I can get. Currently, I am looking for people to help out with two positions: counting votes and making graphics. To help count votes, all you need to do is receive PMs from members as they tell you what nominees they are voting for. You tally up the votes and report to me after the end of each voting period. You will even be able to still vote on your own, but remember, NO cheating on counting up other people’s votes.
