Bruce L. Paisner, president of the International Academy, stated, “We decided to keep the winners’ announcement for the same day the awards ceremony would have been held in Cannes. And so today, March 31, although we cannot do it on-stage as usual, the International Academy, and our partners MIPTV, TV Kids and Ernst & Young, join us to congratulate the outstanding teams behind the winning programs. These programs entertain, educate and enlighten, with the high standard of quality we expect for our children and their communities at large.”
