AAMA has named the 2018-2019 AAMA Young Artist of the Year Awards, and the 2019-2020 AAMA Art of the Week Award.
The nominees were selected by the AAMA panel, which includes artists and other staff, and include the award-winning artist and award-winner, Laila Adebayo, who was named to the 2019 AAMA award for her collaboration with the BBC on an animation about a boy who grows up as a mutant child.
Adeba’s animation, “Laila Adibayo and the Human Race,” won the 2017-2018 AAMA Award for Best Animated Feature Animation.
Adebayol’s work has been featured on the BBC’s hit “Futurama” series, as well as on BBC America and Netflix.
She also wrote and performed on “Mumford and Sons.”AAMA also has a variety of other awards for the best young artists in the UK, including the British Independent Art Awards (BIA), which celebrates artists who are creating works that are both innovative and deeply moving.
The BIA is sponsored by the BIA Foundation, the National Gallery of Art (NGA), the National Trust and the BMA.
In 2019, the NGA also created a range of art and cultural projects to support the Nga community.
AAMA is part of the BBC Worldwide Foundation for the Arts, which aims to improve the lives of young people through arts and culture and promote social inclusion.
The AAMA awards were named for the “beautiful young people” who are inspiring the world today, and for the artists who help to make it happen.
