Cartoon Network Africa Wins A SABRE Gold Award For Cartoon Network Buddy Network

Cartoon Network Africa has won an African SABRE (Superior Achievement in Branding, Reputation & Engagement) Gold Award in the Public Education category for their anti-bullying campaign – Cartoon Network Buddy Network. The initiative encourages children to be friendly to each other and report and speak out against bullying in schools. Cartoon Network Buddy Network was rolled out for the first time in Africa last year after a successful rollout in Europe.

In Africa, the campaign was developed in co-operation with Childline South Africa. Olympic gold medalist track and field sprinter, Wayde van Niekerk represented the campaign as a Buddy Network ambassador. The campaign made use of animation, video content and storytelling to inform kids about bullying and how they can put an end to it. The award was presented to Robyn De Villiers, chairman and CEO of Burson-Marsteller Africa (Cartoon Network’s PR agency for Africa) and Aude Bousseau, the marketing and PR manager of Turner Africa. Cartoon Network Africa has also won a 2017 African Excellence Award in the “Content Marketing” category for Buddy Network, the 2017 African Excellence Awards ceremony will take place on 29th June in Johannesburg, South Africa.

To promote the new Ben 10 series, Cartoon Network has been flying around a Heatblast shaped drone from the new Ben 10 series. Heatblast is one of the ten aliens Ben Tennyson can transform himself into by using the Omnitrix. As a festival partner, Cartoon Network created a Drone Zone where kids can learn how to operate and fly a drone. The Foxtel Footy Festival celebrates and showcases the best Melbourne has to offer in food, music, movies, and of course – Australian Football.
