Animax Awards History:
The Animax Awards began in Japan in 2002. They were created to seek out new anime talent from among the Animax viewers. The competition was immediately successful because it provided anime fans with the opportunity to contribute their original ideas to the world of animation. It also allowed the winner to see his/her work come to fruition and to share the final product with ANIMAX viewers around the world.
This year, we’re bringing the competition to Asia.
