The 5th A113Animation Awards Nominations

After one year off, the A113Animation Awards are back! These are our 5th Awards, and we are following the same formula established in the previous years; a few things have changed, though: we're introducing a Best Writing Award, and we've let go of the Ben Kerfoot Award.
Unlike for the past editions, William won't be picking the winners; I (Damien) will, according to my personal taste and based on the films I've seen. Of course William will also choose his favourite 2015 animated film, as will Munir.
The winners will be announced on Saturday 30th January.

The films eligible for an Award must have been released in the UK in 2015. That's why films like Big Hero 6 or The Tale of the Princess Kaguya are eligible, but Anomalisa is not. And now, here are the 5th A113Animation Award nominees, in alphabetical order by film:
