‘Dodger,‘ ’The Snail and the Whale’ Lead BAFTA Children and Young People Awards Nominations
25th October 2022

The BAFTA has revealed nominations for its Children and Young People Awards, which are returning for the first time in three years.

The BBC’s “Dodger” and “The Snail and the Whale” lead with three nominations each, followed by two nominations for “The Amazing World of Gumball,” “Jamie Johnson,” “JoJo & Gran Gran” and “Silverpoint.”

The ceremony will take place in London on Nov. 27, where 14 categories will be awarded in recognition of craft, performance, and games. All awards are voted on by BAFTA’s membership of children’s industry professionals. The ceremony will be hosted by TV and radio presenter Lindsey Russell.

Faraz Osman, chair of the BAFTA Children and Young People Committee, said: “It is a real joy to bring together the industry and celebrate the creativity and craft behind its recent output, especially after the pandemic, where children’s programming played a monumental role in family support. Through the awards – alongside BAFTA’s new festival for children and young people, and the return of our established programmes to nurture the next generation of games designers, TV presenters and filmmakers – we continue to support our key creators and emerging audiences. Proof that this vital area of the industry remains essential to BAFTA’s mission.”
