Cartoon Network Imagination Studios Competition In Belgium (Flanders): Time To Get Creative!

The Cartoon Network Imagination Studios minisite has arrived to Cartoon Network Netherlands and Flanders, and like the UK, Flanders will be having their very own competition in September. The purpose of the new Cartoon Network Imagination Studios minisite is to educate children on how cartoons are made, guiding them through the storyboard and animation stages with videos hosted by Cartoon Network animators such as Ben Bocquelet (The Amazing World of Gumball) and Rebecca Sugar (Steven Universe).

From Tuesday 1st September, children from all around the Flanders region of Belgium will be participating in the Cartoon Network Imagination Studios Competition. The competition is divided into three categories: Drawing (4 to 8 years old), script/storyboard (8 to 12 years old) or animation (10 to 14 years old). In these categories, kids are able to do anything that they can put their mind to, whether it’s a new Regular Show story or a new Adventure Time character.

Also to promote the new website and competition, Cartoon Network has arranged a Cartoon Network Imagination Studios workshop during the Ostend Film Festival between Tuesday 11th September to Saturday 19th September.

For each category there will be prizes, such as drawing kits, a Wacom tablet or an iPad. A panel of judges will decide the winners.

Boomerang 100% Dutch Feed for the Netherlands To Launch In Early 2015

Boomerang Rebrand

According to both tv-visie.be and totaaltv.nl, Turner Broadcasting System Europe will launch Boomerang Netherlands and Flanders in early 2015, this will mean a fully localised feed in the Dutch language and no more dependency on the Boomerang Africa and Middle East pan feed. An exact launch date hasn’t been released yet. The other Boomerang variants in the Europe, Middle East and Africa region are also due to re-brand early next year and will target the parent and child co-viewing demographic with a mixture of classic cartoons and contemporary imports.

Thanks to Red Arrow from the ToonZone forums for the information.

02/02/2015 EDIT: It now has been revealed that the articles used in this blog post are actually referring to a 100% Dutch audio feed and not actually a separate version of Boomerang, this is only due to a lack of clarity of the news articles in question. To my perception, a “full Dutch feed” as mentioned in the articles refers to both text and audio in the Dutch language.

Also since writing this article, the Netherlands and Flanders no longer have Boomerang Middle East and Africa but rather Boomerang Central and Eastern Europe and have done so since November 2014.

Sorry for any inconvenience, but at least the channel is now available with a complete Dutch soundtrack as of today and there’s always the prospect of a feed split.
