Jenny Buckland

Appointed as CEO of the Australian Children’s Television Foundation in 2002, Jenny Buckland has played a key role in positioning the ACTF as a national children's media and policy hub, and growing the business to become one of the most successful international marketers of children's television programs.

It was Jenny who originally floated the proposal for an Australian children's digital television channel, which culminated in the establishment of ABC3 in 2009.

Formerly the General Manager and Marketing Manager of the ACTF, Jenny has extensive experience in television distribution, business, financial and legal affairs.

Buckland offers invaluable perspective on children’s television both domestically and internationally from her vantage as the head of a national organisation that at once produces, advocates for, and develops policy around children’s television.
