When the bosses announced they were off to New York for a week to “work” its fair to say we were dubious about exactly how much work you could get done in the City that Never Sleeps…….

But it appears their story checked out, they were attending the Annual Kidscreen Summit which is renowned as the most important event in the kids entertainment calendar and ok they could’ve tried to get lost amidst the 1500 delegates from over 800 countries across the globe but they’re from Boulder, they were always going to stand out from the crowd!

And stand out they did with 3 nominations and subsequently 3 wins for the Amazing World of Gumball in the Annual Kidscreen Awards!

The nominations came in the Best Animated Series, Best Animation 2012 and Viewers Choice Best Kids Programme 2012 categories and it was a clean sweep with wins in each!

So it was a succesful week all round, the Gumball juggernaut keeps hurtling along and the bosses have photographic evidence that they werent just shopping and checking out the sights in the Big Apple!
