ICDB had been celebrated on the first Sunday in May to 2008, but the date was changed in 2009. This holiday aims to promote broadcasters around the world to pay more attention to kids program. They should air quality programming about and for children and, the most important, allow children to be a part of programming process.

Thousands of broadcasters around the world participate in this holiday and celebrate it. They look for the ways of celebration, that would be unique and special as children themselves.

The award is presented to the broadcasting company for a program reflecting the International Children's Day of Broadcasting theme, which is annually changed. UNICEF also created its own award, that is presented to television and radio broadcasters.
