The British Academy Children's Awards: the very best in children's media, from programmes and films to presenters and performers, as chosen by BAFTA.

“The Awards have recognised and celebrated the very best in children’s media since 1996,” says Emma Baehr, BAFTA’s director of awards and membership. “We wanted to make the Awards more inclusive and to recognise what’s happening in the environment, while addressing the viewing habits of the next generation, too... Ultimately, we want the Awards to be fit for purpose and we think these changes reflect what’s happening both in the industry and with the audience.”
