The awards season is upon us and we’re giving you a chance to get in on the act by telling us what was 2011’s best animated film.

You can decide which film wins the Animation category in this year’s Richard Attenborough Film Awards (the RAFAs), the awards given to the top films and stars of the year as chosen by UK film critics and cinemagoers.

The ten films listed below have made the shortlist and we want you to decide the winner by casting your vote on the Animated Film of the Year website.

Puss in Boots
Winnie the Pooh
Kung Fu Panda 2
Cars 2
The Adventures of Tintin
Arthur Christmas
Happy Feet Two
Mars Needs Moms

We can’t offer you a trip up the red carpet in return but we are giving away two of the nominated films on DVD as prizes for telling us which of the 10 best deserves to win the award – and why.

To enter the DVD prize competition leave your comment in the box below (click on this link if you don’t see the comment box) – but don’t forget to cast your vote on the Award site too. Voting remains open until noon on 20 January 2012.

To help you come to a decision we’ll be posting reviews of the shortlisted films over the next ten days – and we’ll also be offering some more giveaways too!
