The White Elephant is the Children's Media Award of the Film Festival, Jonalu won in the category for best Children's TV-Program.
From the Jury's Verdict: "Children tend to sit in front of the TV, completely absorbed by what they see, simply consuming. With "Jonalu" it is different. [...] The lovingly designed and animated TV-Series animates children to participate in the activities shown on screen. In a playful way they develop dances together and in the same playful way the young audience is introduced to a world where a diversity of languages and cultures exist,[...] making them confortable with different ways of communication."
