“Pim & Pom at the museum” is a finalist for two Prix Jeunesse prizes. At the festival for the best children’s and youth television, the animated series has a chance to win the prize in the fiction category up to 6 years and the Special Theme Prize. The nominated episode is The Big City, about the painting Victory Boogie Woogie by Piet Mondrian.
The Prix Jeunesse International is awarded annually to the best children’s and youth programmes. This year’s theme is “Listen to Kids TV: The Power of Sound”. How important is the role of sound and music in children’s television? The Special Theme Prize is awarded to the TV program that, through its specific use of music and sound, presents the great potential of these elements for the benefit of the child. The moderators of Prix Jeunesse select the winner of the theme prize from all finalists in all categories. “Pim & Pom in the museum” is one of the three nominees for this prize. The animated series is also a finalist in the Up to 6 Years Fiction category.
A total of 400 programs from 58 countries were submitted in six categories. Only one fifth of all submitted programs can be screened as a finalist in competition. The winners in the different categories will be announced on the closing evening of the television festival, which will take place in Munich from 10 to 15 June. The award ceremony can be attended digitally.
“Pim & Pom at the museum” is a Phanta Animation, Pim & Pom BV and AVROTROS production.
