After receiving a record number of entries to the AEAF Awards 2017 over the last several months we are now happy to be able to start announcing the finalists in each of the 18 categories of competition. Over the next week categories will be added, so keep looking.

TV Series - Children is a new category formed after the AEAF organisers received numerous requests from producers to recognise the fact that TV for children requires a different focus and different skills when compared to general TV content - especially regarding animation. The finalist entries below show a special ability to portray environments, characters and stories for kids.
