British Animation Awards
Our top story is about the British Animation Awards’ new category, Best Character Voice Performance. If your voice has starred in a British animated film in the past two years, you qualify to be nominated for this brand new category. Two other categories added this year include New Media: Best Animation and New Media: Best Commissioned Animation, focusing on Internet and downloadable animation.

Update on Writers Guild of America Strike
Tired of Leno and Letterman re-runs yet? With most primetime programming still being fueled by scripts tucked away from before November, the Writers Guild of America is now in its second week of striking and stockpiles of scripts are starting to run out. Primarily, the strike is over new media and how work created initially for television is now being used as promotional material on the Internet and mobisodes on cellular phones without payment being made to the writers who wrote the scripts.
Read about both sides of this argument on the VOX Daily blog and have your say. Featured are viewpoints from writers on the picket lines as well as those who oppose the strike.
