NickVeseyEmma said: “I am absolutely thrilled to have won this award. It was an honour just to be nominated, and to beat off such tough competition was amazing. I am very proud to have won and am thankful that I had the opportunity to enter in the first place. Now I have to find somewhere to put the award!”
Nicholas said: “I was delighted that Emma won for the project. She has shown real courage and determination in being true to herself and her career, and is a complete professional as a result. We would never have made the piece without her ability to get it on the air."
The Aliens piece was also a finalist in the “Shorts” category of the awards.
