Nearly two years of creative work on SAT-7 KIDS’ new website have been rewarded with one of the most prestigious media awards in the Arab world.
SAT-7 KIDS’ delighted Broadcast and Audience Relations Manager Andrea Elmounayer said, “After almost two years of hard work on the new website design, I am gladly informing you that out of 450 registrations, our website, www.sat7kids.com, won the gold prize in the Media – TV and Radio category in the 8th Pan Arab Web Awards competition.”
The award will be presented at a glittering ceremony on 22nd September in Sharm El Sheikh, attended by Arab Ambassadors, competition winners, and national and media leaders.
The new SAT-7 KIDS website was launched on 10th December 2011 to mark the fourth anniversary of the children’s channel. The channel itself is watched by an incredible 9.25 million children across the Arab world.
The website, designed for 5- to 12-year-olds, features all the satellite channel’s popular SAT-7 KIDS programmes along with games, quizzes, devotions, daily Bible verses, testimonies, chat forums and recent news. And it has quickly gained quite a following with 10,000 new visits a month and 75,987 visits between January and August.
Andrea, who led a five-strong design team in creating the site, said, “We wanted to find new ways of enabling children to watch SAT-7 KIDS programmes any time they want” as well as “practise their reading skills, and get to know the Bible and Jesus better.”
Andrea added, “Two years ago, a new up-to-date SAT-7 KIDS website was a dream for me and now we are realising it.”
In true awards fashion, she was keen to share the applause with the whole design team behind the project – Enaam Haddad , Nawal Msallem , Kamal Khairallah , Dounia Ghsseyn and Dany Antoun. She said, “May God bless our efforts to make His word known through our love, belief and determination and through our talents and efforts .”
