Les' Copaque Production's Creative Content Director, Nur Naquyah Burhanuddin said that the award proves that the show has succeeded in elevating local animation to the international level.

"So, it is wrong to say that Upin & Ipin just succeeds locally. Upin & Ipin has reached Indonesia and managed to take home the trophy, beating animations from South Korea, the US and other countries, not once but twice," she added.
