Entries are now being accepted for shows that target preschoolers (ages zero to five), kids (six to 10), tweens/teens (11 to 17) and families in the following programming categories: Best Animated Series, Best Non-Animated or Mixed Series, Best One-off, Special or TV Movie and Best Companion Website. The entry deadline for programming categories is September 14, 2012.
And for the third year in a row, a dedicated set of awards for best efforts in kids broadcasting from around the world will be included.
Kidscreen will begin accepting entries for an overall Channel of the Year award, as well as in special achievement categories covering Best Channel Design, Best Integrated Promotion, Best Interstitial Campaign, Best Channel Website and Best On-Air Host.
