April 15 is the deadline to send in animation scripts for the 1999 Humanitas Prize recognizing "humanizing achievement in television and feature film writing." A $10,000 prize is given to the writer whose children's animation script most fully communicates human values. This year, the Children's Animation category now includes both non-primetime and primetime shows. Engraved trophies are also awarded to the winning shows producer, director, story editor, production company and network. The 1998 Humanitas Prize in Children's Animation went to David Silverman and Marcy Gray Rubin for "Blinded By Love," an episode of LIFE WITH LOUIE for Fox Kids Network. This was the second straight year the honors went to comedian Louie Anderson's semi-autobiographical show. There is no entry fee and no limit to the number of scripts submitted by one person.
