Unicef calls for entries for Children's Broadcasting Awards

Unicef called for entries from broadcasters for the 2011 International Children’s Day of Broadcasting Awards. The ICDB Awards will go to the radio and television broadcasters whose programming best reflects the 2011 International Children’s Day of Broadcasting theme, Girls Are… Boys Are…, and who demonstrate an overall dedication to youth participation in media.

To be eligible for the ICDB Award, broadcasts must have taken place on or around Sunday, 6 March 2011 in conjunction with the 2011 International Children’s Day of Broadcasting. The deadline for entries is 1 July 2011. More information and entry forms can be found at www.unicef.org/icdb.

To encourage youth participation in media throughout the year, judges not only consider the quality of the work, but also the commitment broadcasters make to engaging with youth on an ongoing basis.

Stephen Cassidy, Chief of UNICEF’s Internet, Broadcast and Image Section, stated, "It is very important to create opportunities for young people to express themselves. We want to honour broadcasters around the world that have made these opportunities possible.”
The ICDB Award regional judging will take place in UNICEF’s 8 regions. Entries are due to UNICEF’s regional offices by 1 July, 2011. The top-scoring entries in each region will compete for the global ICDB Award, to be announced in the fall.

Established in 1991, the International Children’s Day of Broadcasting encourages broadcasters to produce programming by, with and for children.
