Pogo Amazing Kids Awards get interactive this year

MUMBAI: It‘s time for the third edition of the Pogo Amazing Kids Awards (PAKA) and this time the fun and frolic around the awards is set to double. Unlike its previous two editions, this time round apart from airing the awards on Pogo in December, the channel will also weave programming around it.


"We will be presenting PAKA in a serialised format this year comprising 19 episodes over a period of seven weeks, which will showcase the kids who are shortlisted in the award categories," says Turner International India vice president advertising sales and networks (India and South Asia) Monica Tata.


What‘s more, for the first time, the show will also weave interactivity around it wherein viewers can SMS and vote in for their favourite kids in various categories. The call of voting for Paka will start from 15 September and will end of 31 October. The awards will be held in December.


The series will begin airing on 4 November. The first eight episodes will be non-category specific, profiling episodes, with the viewer getting to see five amazing kids every episode. The ninth episode will be a re-cap and episodes 10 - 17 will have the top three kids‘ pitched against each other vying for the top rung by impressing the jury, viewers and thereby getting their votes. Episode 18 will again be a re-cap and also the curtain raiser to the finals. Winners will be announced in the 19th episode.


The winners will get a child benefit policy worth Rs 500,000 and will also get a change to be on Pogo through 2007. Derek O‘Brien‘s company will manage the entire selection and search process for PAKA 2006.


The search for the 40 kids from eight categories (five kids per category) of arts, sports, music, singing, dance, genius, leadership and entertainment will begin on 1 August and end on 20 August. These 40 kids will further be shortlisted to 24 (three per category).


Tata added, "Having the distinction of being the country‘s only televised kids‘ awards, as also a unique platform that acknowledges India‘s wealth of budding talent and kids‘ choices, Pogo Amazing Kids Awards 2006 aims to raise the benchmark for children‘s awards in the country through audience polls and a panel of illustrious judges whose combined feedback would determine which amazing Indian kid bags each of the eight coveted titles. Right from the solicitation phase up to the grand finale, every phase of Pogo Amazing Kids Awards 2006 will truly reflect Pogo‘s promise of being a channel that Indian kids can call their own."


PAKA is divided into two sections - Pogo Voice Awards and Pogo Kids Awards. The Pogo Kids Awards segment will recognize exceptional talent and brilliance and reward them for their extraordinary talents in multiple areas.


The channel has tied up with Bata as their on-ground partners, wherein kids can avail of the entry forms from any of the 850 Bata outlets across the country. Forms can also be downloaded from www.Pogo.tv and information can also be found by sending an SMS to 8558.


Apart from that there are two presenting sponsors (Horlicks and Parle G) and six associates sponsors (Kellogg‘s, Big Babol, Kissan, Reynolds, Munch and Ganuchi Shoes).


To promote PAKA 2006, Pogo will kick off an integrated media campaign comprising outdoor, print, internet and school contact programmes. Mailers will be sent out to 200,000 kids across India and school contact programmes will be held in approximately 3000 schools.
