ACTF supported programs Nowhere Boys - Series 1 and Dance Academy – Series 3 were nominated for best kids series last year at the International Emmy Kids Awards.

The Matchbox Pictures production is just one of two nominees representing Australia in the International Emmy Kids Awards.  Galaxy Pop’s Australian animation series, Get Ace, was nominated in the “Kids: Animation” division.
