The Arts Foundation Futures Awards 2022 supports and celebrates artists for both their work to date and future development. The recipient of the £10,000 award for Animation, supported by The David Collins Foundation, will be announced along with awards in four other artforms (Materials Innovation, Music for Change, Theatre-Makers, and Visual Arts) at a celebration event in late January 2022 – with all finalists receiving £1,000 awards towards their artistic practice. 

The London International Animation Festival – the UK’s largest and longest-running animation festival – is back with 10 days of amazing screenings, talks and visits from local and international animators with its first fully hybrid edition.
