International children's day of broadcasting
The International Children's Day of Broadcasting (ICDB) is celebrated on the first Sunday of every March, is a day when broadcasters around the world "Tune in to Kids". They air quality programming for and about children. But most of all, they allow children to be part of the programming process, to talk about their hopes and dreams and share information with their peers.
The Day is a joint initiative of UNICEF and the International Academy of Television Arts & Sciences. Every year, thousands of broadcasters in more than a hundred countries take part in the day, celebrating it in ways that are as unique and special as children themselves. What broadcasters can do Throughout the years, the world largest broadcast campaign for children has produced some of the most creative children’s programmes. Here are some great examples of what broadcasters in Mozambique can do to encourage everyone to participate on this special occasion, and to make a lasting difference.
Broadcasters in a wide range of countries including Canada, Finland, Morocco, Brazil and Mongolia have all devoted large blocks of airtime to children.International competition
