|Children at the Manana Youth Center in Yerevan watching the finalists of this year's Prix Jeunesse.|
Three different workshop within nine days are on the agenda in the Armenian capital Yerevan from April 7-15, 2008.
First of all, 15 children aged between 12 and 15 come together in the Manana Youth Center to be the regional youth jury for this year's Prix Jeunesse. They will watch six hours of programmes from all over the world - the finalists in the age category 12-15.
This is followed by a hands-on production workshop for children who will produce a series of OneMinuteJr videos. They will write their own stories, film them and edit them with a small team of local and international video trainers.
And finally, children's TV producers from Armenia will have the privilege of participating in a Prix Jeunesse Suitcase presentation. They will watch and discuss the best productions for children from the Prix Jeunesse festivals in 2002, 2004 and 2006. The idea behind this presentation is to stimulate the producers' imagination and to give them an idea of what is being done around the world.
