The Annie Award for Best Animated Short Subject is an Annie Award given annually to the best animated short film.


It was introduced in 1995.[1] In 1998, the award was renamed to Outstanding Achievement in an Animated Short Subject, and renamed again to Outstanding Individual Achievement in Animated Short Subject in 1999, but went back to its second title in 2000. In 2005, it was again reverted to its original title, and has remained so ever since.
