The International Academy of Television Arts & Sciences announced the winners of the 4th International Emmy® Kids Awards yesterday (April 5th), and among the winners was Dublin-based animation studio Brown Bag Films’ Bing, which took the Kids: Preschool award.

Bing, celebrating the noisy, joyful, messy reality of life when you’re a preschooler, is a co-production with Acamar Films and Tandem Films based on the massively popular book series Bing by author and illustrator Ted Dewan.

The awards were held for the first time at MIPTV in Cannes.
