- Featured Blogger Aaron Erick Lozada -

Batibot, the well-loved all-Filipino children’s program, is back in the international scene as a finalist in the prestigious Prix Jeunesse International Festival 2012. Batibot was chosen as one of the finalists for the “Up to 6 years old Non-fiction” category and is set to compete against 11 other entries from different nations in Munich, Germany.

According to Festival Coordinator Kirsten Schneid,  “Prix Jeunesse International 2012 received a record number of entries. It also makes me really happy that Batibot’s next generation is in the finals! The pre-selection was so tough, out of 353 only 86 programmes made it to the final round.”

Batibot’s themes, stories, visual and sounds focus on the essentials of living, growing, and learning in a world that is both enriched and challenged by the human and cultural diversity that exists in the Philippines and the bigger world.

Batibot has previously earned various Prix Jeunesse awards: one “Special Jury Prize” in 1990, the “BMW prize for most outstanding program produced with limited facilities” in 1998, and the UNICEF Prize for Prix Jeunesse in 2002.

Batibot airs weekdays at 9:30am and every Saturday at 8:30am.
