“1000 Tricks” from ORF was selected by the international World Media Festivals Television & Corporate Media jury and has now also the chance to earn a Special Award as well as an Intermedia-Globe Grand Award – best of main Festival categories. The Special Jury for Excellence may then select the winner out of the Grand Awards to award the intermedia-globe Grand Prix – best of all Festival entries.
“1000 Tricks” is an entertaining series from ORF’s kids slate, introducing young audiences into the world of magic where children are encouraged to imitate and demonstrate the tricks themselves. However, the program not only shows tricks performed by magicians, but also those that remain mysterious and astonishing. There is also an interactive trick in each episode in which the young viewers can participate.
