Kidscreen Awards 2015 official call for entry
NOW ACCEPTING ENTRIES!
Programming Categories deadline: September 19
Broadcasting Categories deadline: October 31
July 18, 2014: Heading into its sixth year of singling out and celebrating the year’s best kids programming and broadcasting work, Kidscreen Awards 2015 is now accepting entries.
Early-Bird Entry Fees are in effect again this year to reward companies that complete their entries well before deadline.
New this year, we have added a Programming Category for Best New Animation to call special attention to outstanding kids shows that have launched in the last year. And we have also retired Best Companion Website due to overlap with a similar category in our iKids Awards set.
So in our 2015 Programming Category lineup, television shows targeting Preschoolers (0 to 5), Kids (6 to 10) and Tweens/Teens (11 to 17) can be put in the running to win these prizes:
- Best New Series
- Best Animated Series
- Best Non-Animated or Mixed Series
- Best One-off, Special or TV Movie
Early-Bird Entry Fee (until August 15): US$300
After August 15: US$400
Winners will again be chosen by juries of highly respected entertainment professionals, who will also single out programs that merit special Creative Talent Awards for Animation, Directing, Voice Talent, Writing, Music, Design and Acting.
And in our Broadcasting Categories, dedicated kids channels and strands from around the world can compete for the following Kidscreen Awards:
- Channel of the Year
Early-Bird Entry Fee (until September 19): US$500
After September 19: US$700
- Best Channel Design
- Best Channel Website
- Best Interstitial Campaign
- Best Integrated Promotion
- Best On-Air Host or Hosting Team
Early-Bird Entry Fee (until September 19): US$250
After September 19: US$350
Entries in these streams will be shortlisted by Kidscreen’s esteemed editorial team, and the final winners determined by an industry vote open to the magazine’s 10,000-plus readers.
Winners in all categories will be announced at an evening presentation event as part of next year’s Kidscreen Summit, which is set to take place in Miami from February 23 to 26. All Kidscreen Summit delegates will be invited to attend the ceremony and cocktail party as part of their event experience, after registering online at summit.kidscreen.com. And other guests can sign up to attend just the Kidscreen Awards event for $150, beginning in January.
Detailed information on eligibility, judging and entering can be found at awards.kidscreen.com. The deadline for entries in the Programming Categories is September 19, and the Broadcasting Categories entry window closes a little later on October 31.
