Irish animation and live action studio Telegael has been awarded one of three Cartoon Tribute awards at the 2019 Cartoon Forum held in Toulouse, France.

The aim of the Cartoon Tributes is to reward outstanding achievements, companies or personalities that have had a positive and dynamic influence on the TV animation industry over the last year.

1,000 professionals from 40 countries attending the Cartoon Forum voted on-site in 3 categories: Broadcaster, Investor/Distributor and Producer of the Year. The award ceremony took place on Thursday 19 September. The winners received a Cartoon Tributes trophy, symbol of the professional recognition from their peers.

The 2019 Cartoon Tributes winners are: 

  • Broadcaster of the Year: RTBF-OUFTIVI | Belgium
  • Producer of the Year: Panique! | Belgium 
  • Investor/Distributor of the Year: Telegael | Ireland
