The Hedda Jury gave the following reason for the award for Tobias og dagen det smalt* (Tobias and the day of the bang):

"Traditionally, theatre for children has been fast-paced and aiming to trigger the imagination. Increasingly often it is also low-key and reflective. This year's award winner is both. It is colourful and flexible, and it underlines the ability children have in processing reality through playing. Through playing, the characters reflect, and they share personal dilemmas. They imagine what no longer is, and what nobody knows will be. The adults are in the periphery, but they do create a sense of security surrounding the central dilemmas yet the same. They can handle the practicalities, whereas the children's solutions are conveyed through deeply personal perspectives on identity and change.

The Hedda Award in the best production for children category goes toTobias og dagen det smalt* (Tobias and the day of the bang)."
