On Monday June 27th 2016, Cyber Group Studios hosted for the fifth time a Semi-Final round of judging for
The International Emmy® Kids Awards in two categories: Kids Preschool and Kids Animation.
The International Academy of Television Arts & Sciences recognizes excellence in television produced and aired outside of the United States at a ceremony in Cannes during MIPTV, attended by leading figures from the global television community.
The judging event took place in Paris, at hotel ‘Scribe’, with a jury composed of more than twenty leading TV executives from the biggest television broadcasters around the world: Nickelodeon (USA), VRT (Belgium) SpaceToon (Dubai), RTP (Portugal), RAI and De Agostini (Italy), ARD/HR, Super RTL and KIKA (Germany), RUV (Iceland), The Walt Disney Company, TF1, France Televisions, M6, Canal +, Turner (France) and TV5 Monde.
The jurors devoted the entire day to the screening and judging process, supervised by Emmy Judging Director Nathaniel Brendel. The programs screened comprised productions from South Korea, Japan, United Kingdom, Canada, Ireland, Argentina, Brazil and Australia.
Pierre Sissmann, Chairman and CEO of Cyber Group Studios and active member of The International Academy of Television Arts & Sciences says: “We were delighted to host this judging ceremony with so many international experts coming from all over the world and the US. And once again participate to this event which recognizes excellence in children TV production.”
