About the Prix Jeunesse Foundation
https://www.prixjeunesse.de/

The Prix Jeunesse Foundation is an international body promoting excellence in children’s television, which hosts a world-leading biennial festival. The festival's creative and challenging atmosphere is carried worldwide through its Prix Jeunesse Suitcase events, featuring the best and most innovative entries from each festival. 

 

This event is funded by the University of Glasgow's Ferguson Bequest. Professor Thomas Ferguson (1900-1977), Henry Mechan Chair of Public Health (1944-64), bequeathed his estate to the University, with the instruction that the money should be used to foster the social side of University life.
