Whiz Kids Workshop Awarded 2008 Children’s Television Festival’s Next Generation Prize
The “Next Generation Prize” is awarded to “a production team that is inspirational, innovative and inspired by a great idea that was produced under difficult circumstances. The intention of the award is to promote talent that—with financial support, mentoring and consultation—promises to come up with great results in the future.
As a result of the award, Whiz Kids Workshop will have an opportunity to work with the prize’s sponsors which include the BBC, Disney Germany, Nickelodeon International, the Australian Children’s Television Foundation, KRO (Dutch Public Broadcasting) and ZDF (German Television Network). The sponsors will provide assistance with development, technical, and creative advice throughout production of their next project.
“The jury was hugely impressed by the program’s ability to talk to children, to be creative as well as communicative, on an extremely limited budget,” said Prix Jeunesse in a statement. “Finally, we all felt that ‘Tsehai Loves Learning’ was inspired by a great idea born out of the needs of its audience – which after all is the basis of all great TV. The jury is delighted to extend this prize to Whiz Kids Workshop and to assist the team as they consider their next project.
