Apple wins its first BAFTA Children & Young People Awards
Apple has picked up four BAFTA Children & Young People Awards for its Apple TV+ children's content.
The honors have marked Apple's first British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) Children & Young People wins. "El Deafo" won the Content for Change award. The Content for Change category was added in 2018 and recognizes content that goes beyond entertainment to tackle issues with "very real world consequences," according to the BAFTA website.
"Wolfwalkers" won the Feature Film category, and "Lovely Little Farm" won the Pre-School — Live Action category.
Lastly, Chris O'Dowd was honored with a BAFTA award for his performance in "Here We Are: Notes for Living on Planet Earth."
While this is Apple's first BAFTA win for children's programming, the tech giant has been recognized by the organization for its other programming. Most recently it won two BAFTA awards for its "9/11" and "1971" documentaries.
