Congratulations to the guys over at Dream Cortex (www.dreamcortex.com) for winning the Digital Entertainment Merit Award for Best Digital Animation TV Series at the Hong Kong ICT Awards 2007. Their computer generated animated series, “The Adventures of Hello Kitty & Friends” was produced in partnership with Sanrio Digital (Hong Kong) (www.sanriodigital.com).

The Hong Kong ICT Awards (www.hkictawards.hk) is a collaborative effort among industry organizations, ICT professional bodies, academia and the Government to select and honor the territory’s finest accomplishments in Information and Communication Technology (ICT). The Best Digital Entertainment Award recognizes the best works produced in the Hong Kong digital entertainment industry.


‘The Adventures of Hello Kitty & Friends’ is licensed by Sanrio Digital (Hong Kong), who shares the award with Dream Cortex.
