Cartoon-Forum-150

Cartoon Forum wrapped up its 2012 edition with its annual Cartoon Tributes, honoring French channel Gulli, Monster Entertainment and Jam Media.

Gulli was awarded the Broadcaster of the Year honor. The digital French channel broadcasts animation for children during the day and family films and programs in primetime. The honor was accepted by executive Emmanuelle Baril.

Winning as Distributor of the Year was Monster Entertainment. Based in Ireland, the company was founded by Andrew Fitzpatrick, former chairman of Don Bluth Entertainment.

“It’s really nice to be recognized for our passion for European animation,” said Fitzpatrick in receiving the honor. “We love European animation. The most creative projects we see are always European.”

Producer of the Year honors went to Jam Media, another Irish company. 

“We create our own IP, and we have fun when we do it, which is very important to us,” says co-founder John Rice.

The 23rd edition of Cartoon Forum was held in Toulouse, France.
