International Children's Day of Broadcasting (ICDB)
2011 International Children's Day of Broadcasting (ICDB) Awards
Rules and Regulations
The International Children’s Day of Broadcasting Awards aim to reward not only excellent programming on the International Children’s Day of Broadcasting, but also a broadcaster’s efforts to foster and encourage the genuine participation of young people in broadcasting throughout the year.
To be eligible for the 2011 Award, the main ICDB broadcast presentation must have taken place on or around Sunday, 6 March 2011 in conjunction with the 2011 International Children's Day of Broadcasting. Broadcasters are required to submit a programme presentation of their work on the ICDB and are also invited to submit a compilation of youth-driven programming throughout the year.
Programme Length: If the programme presentation is longer than one hour, please submit an edited version of at least 30 minutes and no more than 45 minutes, which should include all the segments pertaining to ICDB.
If you are submitting a compilation of year-round broadcasting/events, please submit an edited version of no more than 30 minutes.
Language: All presentations may be submitted in their original language. If dubbing or subtitling is not feasible, the entry must include an English-language summary detailing the presentation. Regional winners will be asked to provide an English-language transcript of the entry for final judging. The more detail available, the better the judges can evaluate the program.
Entry Fee: There is no entry fee, but all materials must be delivered to UNICEF pre-paid and free of any shipping, customs, brokerage fees, duties and/or taxes.
Deadline: All entries must arrive to their respective regional offices by Friday 1 July 2011.

How your Presentation will be Judged
The regional offices of UNICEF will organize a judging session consisting of television, radio and media professionals from their region. The top-scoring program from each region will then compete as a Nominee in the Final Round of Judging organized UNICEF in New York City.
The Jurors will score the ICDB entries according to how effectively the presentation communicates the Day's themes and concepts as well as the production value of the presentation. They will also look at the year-round commitment to including youth in the media-making process. The theme for the 2011 International Children’s Day of Broadcasting was "Girls Are... Boys Are...". The three (3) criteria for judging are:
• Concept: Does the programme promote UNICEF’s principles, purpose and themes for the Day?
• Execution: Are youth involved in the presentation of the programming? Have they been part of the production process? Are youth represented in the programme? Did they use their resources effectively to create a high-quality programme? Do the writing, directing, and production convey the idea of this program effectively to the viewer?
• Year-round youth participation: Has the broadcaster invested time to children’s programming on more than one day? Have youth been engaged in the production process? Has there been any training or other activities for youth throughout the year?
The Jurors will also look at the year-round activities of the broadcaster. Has the broadcaster invested time to children’s programming on more than one day? Have youth been engaged in the production process? Has there been any training or other activities for youth throughout the year?
Submission materials entered into the competition will not be returned. Excerpts of a maximum of fifteen (15) minutes of each nominated programme may be used in any television broadcast, webcast, or video promotion produced for or by UNICEF.
