Iranian producer Mitra Ziaei's radio program for children has won the 2011 UNICEF Regional Award for International Children's Day of Broadcasting (ICDB).
Ziaei's program is aired on Iran's Salamat Radio and addresses children's issues. Two children perform in the show with a group of kids sitting in the studio, IRNA reported.
“I would like to take this opportunity and invite all Iranian television and radio broadcasters to join the future ICDB competitions and empower young people through involving them in the media,” said UNICEF Representative in Iran, Anna Riatti.
Ms. Ziaei's program won the award after competing with numerous radio programs from the countries in the Middle-East and North African (MENA).
