Winner of International radio prize
Jenny Jägerfeld wins Silver at New York Festivals Radio Awards in the category best programs for children / young adults for her contribution Banjo Baby.
Banjo Baby is written by Jenny Jägerfeld for Swedish Radio and is about Märta who has a banjo channel on Youtube – but also a big secret.
– I’m so happy and honored! I’ve actually been thinking about Banjo Baby a little extra lately. When I wrote it, I noticed that I like her so much that I have decided to write a book that will only be about her, says Jenny Jägerfeld.
Märta is based on one of the characters in Jenny Jägerfeld’s award-winning children’s novel Comedy Queen, which has also been adapted to film and received the Crystal Bear at the Berlin Filmfestival 2022. It is Sasha’s best friend, Märta, who is at the center of the radio series.
