2022 Christian Ani Awards
To celebrate the Christian and West Michigan historical connection to American animation and the voices shaping the future, we decided to create the 2022 Christian Ani Awards. This in-house award celebrates members of the CAS fam who've made an outstanding contribution toward shaping the future of Christian animation. We will especially be highlighting the young leaders with the Young Influencer Award, because we believe animation is the future of Christian media.
DID YOU KNOW?
Did you know that many of the top animators in America are believers? In fact, animation in America was created by Spring Lake, MI native, Winsor McCay, a Christian. The top award in animation, given at the Annie Awards, is named after him.
