Award For Chicken Run


The British animated film Chicken Run has won an award from an animal rights group.

It will collect the Genesis Award from the Ark Trust in the USA in March. The organisation said the film offered "a creative and empathetic insight into chicken farming from the chickens' point of view".

Chicken Run was made by Nick Park and Peter Lord, producers of the popular Wallace and Gromit series.

The award will be presented at The Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills on March 10 during a show presented by Judd Nelson and Charlotte Ross.
