Call for entries: Asia–Pacific Child Rights Award for Television 2013

The ABU, CASBAA and UNICEF are calling on Asia–Pacific broadcasters and producers to submit entries for the 2013 Child Rights Television Award.

The award is given each year to the best television programming on children’s rights produced in the Asia–Pacific region.  It recognizes the efforts of broadcasters in pursuing both the production of high quality children’s programming and better coverage of children’s issues.

Programmes both for children and about children are eligible and can cover any children’s rights issue. Entries can include documentaries that detail the plight of children, dramas that help break down stereotypes and discrimination, or animation that teaches and entertains.

Entries must have been broadcast between June 2012 and May 2013 and must be received by Wednesday 5 June 2013.   The award will be presented during the CASBAA Convention taking place 22-24 October 2013 in Hong Kong.

Eligibility criteria and more information on the Award is available at the Asia-Pacific Child Rights Award website.
