What is TOMMI - the German award for children's software?

Since 2002 the TOMMI award has been given at the Frankfurt Book Fair to the most innovative and outstanding software titles developed specifically for children in each of four categories: PC, Consoles, Apps, Electronic Toys.

The TOMMI award is awarded jointly by german publisher Family Media (Freiburg), and children media specialist, FEIBEL.DE (Berlin). This year the awards have been sponsored and supported by the german broadcaster ZDF, the Frankfurt Book Fair and the German Library Association dbv, jugendschutz.net (Youth Protection), Google and Partner & Söhne. Patron of TOMMI is the German Minister for Families Dr. Franziska Giffey.
