As part of the Shaw Rocket Fund’s ongoing mission to support the Canadian children’s media industry, the 2014 Shaw Rocket Prize continues to acknowledge three specific target audiences, with total prize money of $75,000!
Three prizes of $25,000 will be awarded to Canadian recipients for:
1. Preschool Program
2. Children’s Program
3. Youth/Family Program
Judging remains the same, because it works! Our esteemed International Jury will judge the entries and selected the top 3 entries for each target audience. Then, the Canada-wide Kids Jury will judge the finalist programs that correspond to their age group and vote to select the winners of the 2014 Shaw Rocket Prize.
