The European Award For Best Content For Kids is a competition organised jointly by the INSAFE Safer Internet Awareness network and the European Commission's Safer Internet Programme. The competition was organised for the second time in 2013, after a pilot competition that took place in 2010-2011 (Best Children’s Online Content European Award 2011).
The award aims at encouraging children and adults to create new and highlight already existing child-friendly, quality online content and will be realized in most EU member states and also in Iceland, Norway and Russia.
The Thematic Network POSCON was intensively involved in the preparations for the European Award For Best Content For Kids and has shaped the main features of the competition. Based on the experiences from the pilot phase and in co-operation with INSAFE, POSCON developed a proposal for the continuation of the European Award.
In the course of recent months, categories and criteria for this year´s European Award were developed on the basis of the previous competition, intensively discussed by INSAFE and POSCON and accordingly revised.
Also, guidelines for organizing the competition on national level were set up and provided, e.g. recommendations regarding how to select the national jury, how to promote the competition and how to choose the national winners.
