Children’s Program

Children’s Program entries for the 2020 AACTA Awards are now open.

Eligibility Requirements

In order to be eligible, a Children’s Program must:

  • Be an Australian production produced for television, video-on-demand or subscription-video-on-demand;
  • Have had the first episode of the entered series / season or, in the case of a single standalone program, the entire production broadcast in Australia for the first time between 27 October 2019 and 31 October 2020.
  • Be a television program that is made predominately for viewing by children, either created using animation or recorded in live action.
  • Have a potentially unlimited number of episodes, comprising either:
    • A series of self-contained stories which can be screened in any order; or
    • A number of interweaving and overlapping plots continuing from one episode to the next.
  • The entrant can submit up to two episodes for judging. These episodes will be judged as a single entry for the Best Children’s Television Series Award but as individual entries for all other Awards.


Membership & Entry

A Program, Film, Episode or Season which has been previously entered into the Awards is ineligible for entry into the current or any future Awards.

Late entries will not be accepted.
