As the British Animation Awards are known as BAA and we wanted to make our Awards something really special, we thought it would be nice to give each award winner something unique that they would really cherish - a drawing, or painting, or some kind of artwork made and signed by an inspirational fellow artist-animator, which is known as a "baa"....

And since "baa" is the sound that sheep make (at least in the English language!) the official "baa artist" spec asks that the "baa" should have one or more sheep in it, with the option for a visual reference to the UK and/or animation.

The 'baas" feature in the centrefold of the official BAA night programme, are projected on screen at the Awards night as the winner goes up to receive the original.

Check them out here in our Awards Gallery.
