Celebs prepare for Kids' Baftas

Dick and Dom
The 10th anniversary of the Children's Baftas will be celebrated on Sunday with a glittering ceremony in London.

Among those nominated are CBBC's Dick and Dom in the entertainment category, and Blue Peter's Matt Baker and ITV's Holly Willoughby for best presenter.

There are also awards for best writer, feature film and factual programme.

Attending the bash are Liberty X, who will be performing, and pop star Lee Ryan who is handing out an award.

Stiff competition

There's always loads of competition to win one of the famous Bafta masks and this year is no exception.

As usual one of the most fiercely fought over awards is that for the best feature film.

The four nominees in this section are Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, The Incredibles, The Polar Express and Shark Tale.

Kids Vote

Most of the awards are voted for by the British Academy but this year children are also being allowed their say.

A special section is being included called the Bafta Kids' Vote which will be decided by a nationwide poll of children under 16.

They are being asked to choose their favourite family-oriented feature film of the last year from a shortlist of 10 including Batman Begins, Madagascar and Lemony Snicket.

Special Award

This year the British Academy will also be presenting a Special Award.

This will be awarded to the Junior Television Workshop for its outstanding development of young talent for film and television.

The workshop has been running for 22 years and members have gone on to work on children's programmes such as Grange Hill, Dream Team, Tracey Beaker and Bernard's Watch.
