    The BAFTA Award for Best Short Animation is an award handed out by the British Academy of Film and Television Arts (originally the British Film Academy, later the Society of Film and Television Arts).

    History

    left
    The category was introduced with the 1952 awards, and was originally titled Best Animated Film. During this time, it covered both feature films and shorts.
    When the award categories were divided into two main areas - television and film - with the 1954 British Film Academy awards, Best Animated Film went into the film category. With the 1982 awards, however, it was placed into the television category and as a result began focusing mainly on television series. It eventually returned to the film category with the 1989 awards.
    The title "Best Animated Short" was first used with the 1982 awards, although the original title was still used for several years. The current title "Best Short Animation" was introduced later on although, again, the three names were still widely used interchangably. The name "Best Animated Film" is currently used for a separate category dedicated to feature-length films, introduced with the 2006 awards.
    Until 1967 the category had its own trophy (pictured left), modelled on a statue of the Hindu god Tara found in the Victoria and Albert Museum.
