When launched in 1997, Disney Channel France adopted the same logo and idents as Disney Channel UK. It adopted a new identity package by Gedeon in March 1999. In March 2000, Disney Channel France opened a contest called the Les Grands Prix De L'imagination, where animators from all around France create idents for Disney Channel International, and two winners will have their idents shown on the French channel. The winners were Marc du Pontavice, the producer of Oggy and the Cockroaches (who did the "Glass Charger/Laboratory" ID for the 1999 line-up), and Eric Berthier (who did the "Alien" ID for the 1997 package). On June 21, 2003, Disney Channel France also adopted Disney Channel US' new logo and idents. In 2011, Disney Channel International adopted the new cellphone app-shaped logo and idents.
