UNICEF, the United Nations International Children's Education Fund, is
looking for additional animation partners to participate in their "Cartoons
for Children's Rights" initiative. The partnership currently includes over
70 animation companies, as well as independent animators from 32 countries.
Each participant produces and donates at least one 30-second non-verbal
public service announcement dealing with a single right, such as a child's
right to protection from armed conflict, to health care, to freedom from
abuse, to a name and nationality, that children worldwide should have. The
shorts are being offered free of charge to broadcasters around the world
through the National Committees for UNICEF and UNICEF field offices.
Already, over 2000 broadcasters in 160 countries are showing the 66 spots
from the first two tapes to an estimated viewing audience of over 1 billion
people. Credit to each animator is given at the end of each spot.
Participate in the newest tapes being launched in June! Visit UNICEF's Web
site at www.UNICEF.org or contact George McBean, Head of Design, UNICEF,
Division of Communication, at: 3 UN Plaza, New York, NY 10017; or E-mail:
