The Ray Harryhausen Awards

Who has avoided the wrath of Talos to secure one of the prestigious Ray Harryhausen Awards? Join us as we reveal the big winners of 2022

The inaugural Ray Harryhausen Awards have crowned their champions. The awards honor the legendary master of stop-motion animation and the creative talents that he has inspired. Filmmakers from far and wide risked the wrath of the titans to submit their entries for consideration. And by the Gods, the winning films look absolutely stunning.

The incredible award has been cast by Arch Bronze foundry; the same craftsmen behind the prestigious Olivier Awards. And they look more precious than all the Gods’ treasures. But don’t take our word for it. Join us as we find out which entries were successful in each category in the premiere of the official awards announcement video. But be warned, these awards are protected by Zeus himself!


Ray’s daughter, Vanessa Harryhausen said of the awards “Dad always recognized the strong educational aspect of his work. I hope that these awards will encourage a new generation of animators to be inspired and follow their own dreams.”


Ray’s centenary year was a joy to behold. Thanks, in part to the Ray Harryhausen Titan Of Cinema exhibition at the National Gallery; which has now sadly closed its doors for the last time. But the event was an absolute triumph. If you missed the event, you can get some wonderful insights into the exhibition thanks to Vanessa’s new book – Ray Harryhausen: Titan Of Cinema which you can order here.
