KidScreen, the leading international children’s entertainment trade publication, has announced that JeemTV is a nominee for the best channel design award (MENA and Europe) at its fifth annual awards. This is the first ever nomination of an Arab channel at the prestigious competition celebrating programming and broadcasting excellence in the global children’s entertainment industry.

This recognition is one more testament to the success of JeemTV which is the only Arabic channel to be shortlisted for this award, together with Cartoon Network (North America), Discovery Kids (Asia-Pacific), KidsCo (multi-regional) and Nickelodeon (Worldwide).

Commenting on the nomination, JCC’s Acting Executive General Manager and Channels’ Director Saad Al Hudaifi stated “JCC launched JeemTV to provide safe media platform for Arab children and their families, offering educational and entertainment content while preserving Arabic values and culture.

The channel actively employs design and imagery in all programming to promote children’s interest in art, education, sport and health. Our programming blocks include Get up &Go, Grow and Learn, Readjust Engage, Entertainment, and Family time. Each block is represented with different color palettes that reflect the programing energy levels– from morning yellow, to energized red that represents an active engagement, to calm purple for the evenings. As the day develops and evolves, so does the color.”

“JeemTV was launched in March of 2013 and has already claimed the World Summit Award for best interactive content for 2013. We welcome nomination for the prestigious Kidscreen award, which underlines our efforts to strengthen our presence on regional and global levels, and are extremely proud to become the first ever Arab channel to receive this recognition,” Al Hudaifi added:

The nomination reflects JeemTV's ongoing efforts to become the leading children’s media platform in the region, and to expand its reach to Arabic-speaking children and families around the world.
