Cartoon Forum honors Euro trio

Tributes go to Gulli, Monster, Jam Media

PARIS– French digital terrestrial net Gulli and Ireland’s Monster Entertainment and Jam Media topped the Cartoon Tributes Awards at the Cartoon Forum, the co-production mini-mart dedicated to European TV animation.

Lagardere-owned Gulli won broadcaster of the year, while Monster and Jam Media won the investor-distributor and producer nods, respectively.

Kids’ channel Gulli broadcasts an eclectic mix of French and international shows, notably British fantasy-adventure series “Merlin” and local toon skeins like “Linus et Boon.”

Dublin-based Monster finances and distributes TV series worldwide, notably the long-running, music-themed series “Planet Rock Profiles,” which has sold to more than 168 countries.

Jam produces a range of shows that air around the world, including “Picme,” a popular toon on PBS Kids Sprout in the U.S., Nickelodeon Junior worldwide and Irish broadcaster RTE; and “Roy,” a live action-animation mockumentary airing in the U.K., Ireland, Australia and Scandinavia.

The 800 Cartoon Forum participants selected the winners.
