Why Don’t We
This year, Nickelodeon is rolling out a brand-new, four week long voting wave where new categories will be revealed each week leading up to the date of the awards show. So make sure to keep an eye out for more announcements and don’t be disappointed if your favourite hasn’t been nominated yet because there is still time!
Voting for all of the film categories is now open, while voting for the music categories will open on 5th March. Voting for the television categories begins on 12th March, and voting for all of the other categories will be available on 19th March.
Kids can cast their votes on all of Nickelodeon’s digital platforms including the Nickelodeon website and the Nickelodeon app which is available on Apple, Android and Kindle. You can also vote using a special #KCA hashtag and the name of your favourite nominee.
