Who's better to present the European Animation Awards than its president (and Aardman power-figure)?

peter-lord2The newly founded institution of European Animation Awards is a unique opportunity for European animators to unite and celebrate the art of European animation.

It has already set its first award date: 8 December 2017 (Nouveau Siècle,  Lille, France).

Taking its name from both French animation artists Émile Reynaud and Émile Cohl, the awards tend to celebrate the creativity and energy of a sector which counts multiple and undeniable successes.

The awards will be voted by the EAA members, representing a large vision of European professionals.

Its first president, Peter Lord, invites all creative animation personnel in Europe to join the EAA and support the pan-European (40 countries involved) effort.
