Canada’s Youth Media Alliance (YMA) has officially launched its English-language Awards of Excellence, which honor achievement in TV programming and digital content for young viewers over the past two years.
The competition is open to all Canadian-made youth productions originally broadcast in English within Canada between January 1, 2011, and December 31, 2012. Nominations must be submitted by Friday, February 15, 2013.
A total of 14 awards will be handed out, including a grand prize for the most outstanding production to hit the small screen (all platforms) in the past two years, along with awards for emerging talent and lifetime achievement.
YMA is particularly seeking nominees for the Outstanding Achievement Award and the Emerging Talent Award.
This year also introduces a new category, the Parents’ Choice Award, which recognizes the best production selected by parents.
