International Digital Emmys announced


The three winners of the fourth annual International Digital Emmys were announced at MIPTV in Cannes, France on 30 March. They are Scorched (Fiction category), Britain From Above (Non-fiction category) and Battlefront (Children and Young People category).

The International Digital Emmy is presented in recognition of excellence in content created and designed for viewer interaction and/or delivery on a digital platform (ie. mobile, Internet, interactive TV, etc) originated outside of the US.

Scorched is Australia’s first ever Digital Emmy.  Produced by Firelight Productions, this 90-minute telefilm has extensive online elements. It depicts a drought-ravaged Sydney encircled by bushfires in 2012.

The other two winners are both UK productions. Britain From Above presents a bird’s eye view of the nation and is a joint television and online project. The cross-platform Battlefront follows 20 teenagers campaigning to change the world.
