Call for entries: Asia-Pacific Child Rights Award for Television 2015

The Asia-Pacific Broadcasting Union (ABU), CASBAA and UNICEF are inviting broadcasters and producers to submit entries to the Asia-Pacific Child Rights Award for Television 2015.

The award is given each year to the best television programming on childrenís rights produced in the Asia-Pacific region. It recognizes the efforts of broadcasters and producers in pursuing high quality childrenís programming and better coverage of childrenís issues.

Last year, the world marked the 25th anniversary of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child. The celebrations of this landmark agreement will focus public and media attention on childrenís rights. Television has a vital role to play in this.

Programmes both for and about children are eligible, and can cover any child 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 2014 and May 2015 and must be received by 15 June 2015. The award will be presented during the CASBAA, in Hong Kong.
