ITV dinosaur drama Primeval and the BBC’s history of the internet, Digital Revolution, were among the winners at this year’s International Digital Emmy Awards last night.
Australian multiplatform producer Hoodlum scooped the fiction prize for its work on Primeval Evolved, a web project that enabled users to take on the role of scientists teaming up to prevent a dinosaur invasion.
Digital Revolution’s website, which hosted all of the rushes of the three-part documentary series throughout its production, won the non-fiction prize.
New Zealand took home its first prize at the annual ceremony, which was held last night in Cannes as part of MIPTV.
Reservoir Hill, a web drama commissioned by TV New Zealand and produced by KHF Media, won the award for children and young people.
Heroes creator Tim Kring picked up the Pioneer award for the US superhero drama’s cross-platform strategy, which has included web-only episodes and characters that have crossed over to the regular TV show.
