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

The TOMMI children's software award is the most important award in Germany for digital games and educational programs for children. 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 and Educational Software.

The TOMMI award is awarded by children media specialist FEIBEL.DE (Berlin). This year the awards have been sponsored and supported by Auerbach Stiftung, the German Library Association dbv, Deutschlandfunk Kultur, Familie & Co, the Frankfurt Book Fair, Google, jugendschutz.net (Youth Protection), mobilsicher.de, Partner & Söhne and the german broadcaster ZDF.
