We have established the AEAF Hall of Fame to recognize some of the people who have contributed to the advancement of the arts of Animation and Visual Effects over the years. Here we have listed all the finalists and winners. Many of the artists who worked on these projects have gone on to become stars of the visual effects industry around the world, winning awards, acclaim and achieving success as artists. We congratulate everyone who contributed to work submitted to the AEAF Awards.
Previous winners of the AEAF Awards are among the world's premier post-production companies, effects houses and studios. You can see the full list of winner for each year below.
The AEAF Awards Finalists and Winners have been announced in all categories. The work is beautiful. Please see the full listing below, and go to the View Entries page on the AEAF website to watch individual projects. We have posted as many projects as we have permission to share.
All teams and artists who entered the Awards this year should feel proud of their work. Your entries keep AEAF Awards going and growing and are appreciated tremendously. As the years have gone by, the increase in the number and quality of projects submitted has been exciting. Please enjoy the huge variety, talent and skill on display here.
The range of techniques available to artists now is one of the most impressive trends you will find among the entries. Most of the earlier techniques don’t disappear but are expanded on, improved on and used to contribute to the next development – motion capture and keyframing; simulated and procedural effects; rear projection, 3D matte painting and LED screens; from green screen keying and 2D/3D compositing in post to in-camera VFX. We see all of these techniques continue to develop and contribute to one another, and they make the AEAF Awards a thrill to watch as they unfold every year.However, it’s still never easy to narrow the field towards the ultimate winners. Having so many top notch entries just makes the process harder.
