International TV Academy Announces 2014 Digital Emmy Winners
The International Academy of Television Arts & Sciences has announced the winners of the 2014 International Digital Emmy Awards at MIPTV in Cannes.
The three winners are:
“Shujaaz.FM Reloaded,” which won for the second time in the Children & Young People category. The program, which is told across multiple formats, comes from Well Told Story, and focuses on inspiring young people to become entrepreneurs and raise awareness about the various challenges they face in their lives. The first installment won in the same category in 2012.
“#7DaysLater,” the Fiction winner, is a crowdsourced comedy series that brings top Australian YouTubers together to create, shoot, edit, and distribute a comedy program in seven days. During the week, the creators bring in their fans across social media to help with the creative process. The series was created by Australian Broadcasting Corporation and Ludo Studio P/L.
“D-Day: As It Happens,” from Windfall Films and Digit London on behalf of Channel 4, won this year’s Non-Fiction prize. The 24-hour digital event lets viewers follow the lives of seven real people in 1944 across multiple platforms, including TV, online video, and Twitter, in real time.
Additionally, as previously announced, the International TV Academy also honored YouTube with this year’s Pioneer Prize, which was accepted by the company’s head of entertainment Alex Carloss.Tags: Alex Carloss, Channel 4, Digit London, Digital Emmys, International Digital Emmys, International TV Academy, MIPTV, Windfall Films, youtube
