ABU DHABI: The Hyde Park Image Nation has won an International Emmy Kids Award for its co-production Lost Christmas.

The programme, which was aired on the BBC, won for the Best TV Movie/Mini-Series and represented the first International Emmy Award win for the GCC.

Image Nation’s strategy of partnering with some of the most prestigious organisations in the industry has helped bring international recognition home to Abu Dhabi. 

The recent Emmy Kids Award joins last year’s Oscar Award for ‘The Help,’ a co-production between Image Nation and Participant Media. 

“Image Nation is proud to be associated with such award-winning programmes, a direct result of the close working relationships we have forged in the global industry,” said Mohammed Al Mubarak, chairman of Image Nation. 

“Partnerships like the one we share with Ashok allow us access to the best and brightest talent, which we can leverage as we continue to mould and grow our own home-grown talent here in Abu Dhabi.”

Ashok Amritraj, a top official of Hyde Park Entertainment, said: “We’re thrilled that Lost Christmas won an International Emmy Kids Award and I want to congratulate the cast, crew and all of our partners.

“Our partnership with Image Nation has enabled us to produce and release high-calibre, quality entertainment that is appreciated by critics and audiences alike.”

“The recognition of The International Academy of Television Arts & Sciences greatly furthers our ambitions for the local filmed entertainment community,” said Michael Garin, a top official of Image Nation. “We look forward to the day when some of our promising Emirati filmmakers and writers can win an Emmy for a locally-grown project.”

Lost Christmas is an urban fairy tale set in Manchester about how a series of tragic events are reversed on Christmas Eve, giving a young boy and those around him the happy ending they were destined for.
