Grey Griffin to Host 2022 Kidscreen Awards

Update (7/20) - The It's Pony short "Coffee Run" won the Best Short Film award and Trevor Noah—TIME Kid of the Year won the Best On-Air Host or Hosting Team award at the 2022 Kidscreen Awards!

Kidscreen has announced the exciting news that the 2022 Kidscreen Awards will be hosted by prolific voice actor, comedian and music artist Grey Griffin!

Grey has voiced more than 1,700 animated characters since 1996, including such iconic roles as Vicky from The Fairly OddParents, Azula from Avatar: The Last Airbender, Lola, Lana and Lily Loud from The Loud House, and Frankie Foster, Duchess and Goo from Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends. And she has also been the voice of Daphne Blake in every Scooby-Doo production since 2000. 

Grey launched “My First Comedy Special” in 2018 to rave reviews, and her debut album of covers—aptly titled Borrowed—is scheduled to drop in 2022. She also balances her multi-faceted career with being a single mom of three kids (ages four, seven and 14). Basically, she’s kicking butt.

The 2022 Kidscreen Awards forms part of the 2022 Kidscreen Summit, which will take place between February 14-17 at the InterContinental Miami in Miami, Florida. For more information, visit

Update (12/8) - Nickelodeon will present the findings from its new research study looking at shared viewing experiences during the "Mind the Gap" session at Kidscreen Summit 2022 on Wednesday, February 16 at 10:00 a.m.

Mind the Gap
Wednesday, February 16
10:00am - 10:45am

It's undeniable that family viewing habits shifted dramatically during the pandemic. And while family content tends to get all the attention, bridge shows—gap content that speaks to both preschoolers and six to nines—also grew in popularity as siblings settled in on the couch together. This new research from Nickelodeon explores what exactly attracts each demographic, where they overlap, and how to make the most of that shared viewing experience.

Senior Director of Consumer Insights

Additionally, Susan Vargo, VP, Global Live Events, Nickelodeon will be a speaker during the summit's "Return to Live" on Wednesday, February 16, 2:00pm - 2:45pm at Bayfront: After months of being cooped up at home, people are eager for fresh experiences, and the live entertainment world is coming back to life. But like everything else, the audience has changed. This session will explore who makes up the primary demographic for family-friendly live entertainment now, and how companies around the world are shifting their approaches to maximize these new opportunities—while also mitigating potential disruption risks.

Update (12/1) - Via Kidscreen:

Activism, Netflix dominate Kidscreen Awards nominations

PBS KIDS Talk About: Race and Racism and Nick News are in the running for trophies, but with a total of 18 shortlisted entries, the SVOD has stolen the spotlight again.

For a second year in a row, Netflix has nabbed the most Kidscreen Awards nominations with a total of 18 shortlisted entries.

Kidscreen Summit: diversidad + inclusión

“Building an Inclusive Talent Pipeline”: Jeff Rivera, Partner, Collective 5 Entertainment; David Siegel, Executive Director, Exceptional Minds; Camille Eden, VP, Recruiting and Talent Development, Nickelodeon; y Calvin Brown Jr., escritor de televisión/productor, Disney

La segunda jornada de Kidscreen Summit Virtual continuó ofreciendo los mejores exponentes de la animación global, incluyendo pantallas, creativos, agentes y jugadores de negocios anciliares, quienes discutieron sobre las principales tendencias donde se destacan claramente los contenidos inclusivos/diversos, de nuevo orígenes y con talentos emergentes.

Nuevamente, la organización ofreció sus tradicionales espacios como “In Conversation with…”, charlas íntimas con los principales tomadores de decisión, los Virtual Speed Pitching, Master Classes, Chatrooms, Cócteles, y los Summit Showcases, en este caso uno de Asia.

Con bloques de contenido como Toggo o Toggolino, Super RTL es líder general del mercado en Alemania. Luisa Albers, Senior Editor, comentó: ‘No hay un estilo único para la animación: queremos dar una variedad de temas, personajes y valores, para que los niños se sientas identificados. Podemos resumirlo en: animación internacional y de altos valores de producción, aunque también buscamos incrementar el número de producciones locales de género neutral’. 

De Disney Junior, Kim Berglund, VP Development, dijo: 'Siempre estoy a la caza de contenido con un poco de "Disney Magic" para niños 2-5 años. Buscamos creadores con “conexión” a los programas que presentan: historias personales, personaje dimensionales y de altos valores como la equidad y la diversidad. Queremos narrativas ricas, que incluyan aprendizaje social y emocional, música, elementos de fantasía y magia. Siempre aspiracional y que refleje el mundo y su diversidad’.

“Building an Inclusive Talent Pipeline” giró en torno a la “diversidad laboral” y las posibilidades de crecimiento dentro las estructuras de medios, tanto para las personas con diversidad funcional, personas sin experiencia laboral previa, como para +40 años. David Siegel, CEO, Exceptional Minds, sostuvo: ‘La próxima frontera es la de personas con distintas condiciones motoras, que son los grandes ignorados en esta industria’.

Calvin Brown Jr, escritor de televisión/productor, Disney: ‘Ofrecemos oportunidades para jóvenes y +40. Tenemos programas de prácticas, entrenamientos, e incluso hay cargos que delegamos únicamente a esos mayores’. Camille Eden, VP, Recruiting and Talent Development, Nickelodeon: 'Si bien los contenidos vienen trabajando la diversidad desde hace algunos años, no era lo mismo dentro de las corporaciones. Hoy puedo dar fe que esto está cambiando. Creamos un camino dentro de la inclusión de personas, no solo de color, sino de otras nacionalidades e identidades sexuales'.


Kidscreen Summit Virtual: hablan los buyers

Prensario Kids & Teens está cubriendo los principales paneles y keynotes de Kidscreen Summit Virtual 2022, donde se destacan los más importantes tomadores de decisión de la industria. La mayoría destaca que busca contenido de calidad y con valores, mientras sobresale el foco preescolar y programación inclusiva y diversa.

Con bloques de contenido como Toggo o Toggolino, Super RTL (Alemania) se ha ubicado como líder general del mercado de contenido para los más pequeños. ‘No hay un estilo definido para la animación o la temática que queremos reflejar: queremos dar una variedad de temas, personajes y valores, para que los niños alemanes se sientas identificados’, dijo Luisa Albers, Senior Editor.

La ejecutiva explicó que su grilla está conformada por una gran cantidad de contenido animado internacional y con altos valores de producción: ‘Aunque nuestro lineup actual tiene más producciones internacionales, hay grandes oportunidades para salir de este modelo: buscamos contenido hecho en Alemania, desde títulos en ‘early development’ hasta títulos ‘ready-to-air. Queremos contenido gender neutral que refuercen valores como la individualidad, la creatividad, el liderazgo y la diversidad racial’. 

Sarah Muller, Head of Commissioning & Acquisitions 7+, y Kate Mordor, Head of Commissioning & Acquisitions 0-6 de BBC (UK) explicaron que, desde que comenzó la crisis del Covid, la compañía se ha mantenido en la búsqueda contante de contenido, tanto para abastecer sus canales de TV abierta como también su web dedicada a contenido para niños en edad preescolar. 'Antes solíamos licenciar contenidos dos veces al año, ahora es una búsqueda constante', remarcaron. 

Están buscando contenido que complemente los programas en las parrillas de ambas señales, esto incluye animación y live action. Las ejecutivas están interesadas en comedias animadas impulsadas por personajes para el bloque de 6-9, así como programas animados que presentan acción y aventura para la audiencia de menores de 6 años. 'Una de nuestras prioridades son los programas puente y de visionado compartido que pueden ayudar a los espectadores de CBeebies a pasar a contenido más maduro para niños de seis a 12 años en CBBC, y empujar a los espectadores de CBBC de mayor edad a descubrir más en el servicio de streaming BBC iPlayer. Nuestro OTT nos brinda más oportunidades para presentar nuevas marcas a los niños en edad preescolar y mayores', completaron.

Kim Berglund, VP Development en Disney Junior, subrayó: 'Siempre estoy a la caza de contenido con un poco de "Disney Magic" para el segmento de niños de 2 a 5 años. Solemos buscar a creadores que tengan una conexión personal con los programas que presentan: Historias personales, con personaje dimensionales y de altos valores como la equidad y la diversidad'.

Comentó además que los pilares de contenido de la marca se resumen en: historias ricas en contextos y narrativas; ejes como el aprendizaje social y emocional, donde incluso se aprenda del fracaso; puede haber música, pues este recurso es muy importante para los niños de esta edad; elementos de fantasía y magia; los personajes deben ser aspiracionales, reflejar el mundo, la diversidad, tanto humanos como no humanos.  

Respecto a las estrategias de desarrollo y su cambio desde que el Covid-19 impactó en la industria, sostuvo: ‘La animación fue uno de los segmentos que menos retrasos tuvo, es por eso que nuestras señales lineales fueron muy consumidas. Esperamos anunciar pronto un slate renovado de nuevos títulos que formarán parte de la programación de este año tanto en lineal como en digital'.

Camille Eden, VP, Recruiting and Talent Development en Nickelodeon, resaltó: 'Creo que casos como George Floyd y como el de mucho otras personas , de verdad hizo repensar los perfiles de talento dentro de las compañías de medios. Si bien los contenidos vienen trabajando la diversidad desde hace algunos años, no era lo mismo dentro de las corporaciones. Hoy puedo dar fe que esto está cambiando. Y es genial como Nickelodeon está creando un camino dentro de la inclusión de personas, no solo de color, sino de otras nacionalidades e identidades sexuales'.

Flavio Medeiros, director de programación y adquisiciones de Discovery Kids Latin America, busca comisionar y adquirir series de TV de animación y de liveaction, y películas dirigidas a niños y niñas de cuatro a ocho años para las plataformas lineales y digitales. ‘Los shows de humor con corazón funcionan bien, al igual que los programas que incorporan magia y música’, expresó el ejecutivo, quien también dijo que si el contenido presenta villanos o historias más complejas, siempre debe ofrecer ‘valores o conclusiones positivas’. 

‘Buscamos shows de TV de 11 minutos o media hora de duración, mientras que los especiales y las películas pueden durar entre 30 minutos o 1 y media’, sostuvo Medeiros. Y agregó: ‘Sobre la unidad de producción, estamos buscando socios en la región para impulsar nuevos IPs’. En ese sentido, se destaca su más reciente lanzamiento: la serie Underdogs United basada en la película Metegol del director argentino Juan José Campanella. El proyecto es una alianza con MundoLoco CGI (productora de Campanella). ‘Buscamos historias que despierten la imaginación y que también representen talento e historias de diversidad’, completó Medeiros.
