We are thrilled to announce that last night, Blakeway North was awarded its first Emmy award for CBBC film "My Life - Born to Vlog" featuring Nikki Lilley. Made with a mix of ob-doc style filming and Nikki's own video diaries and vlogs, the programme followed 12-year-old Lilly for half a year as she flew to the United States every other month for complex surgery for rare disease, Arteriovenous Malformation. 

The Kid's Emmy is the latest accoldae for the film, which has already won The Prix Jeunesse Award, The Japan Prize and an RTS award. Nikki and her parents attended the event at the Carlton Hotel in Cannes along with producer/director Launa Kennett, production executive Alison Lewis and MD/Executive Producer Sarah Murch. 

Of the award Sarah Murch said "We are really thrilled - it is Blakeway North's first Emmy. Nikki is an incredible and inspiring girl and charting her story is a privelege. The award nominations are testament to Nikki and her wonderful family."
