First Emmy Award to Norway

Energikampen won the prestigious award in the entertainment category during the presentation of Emmy Kids Awards which took place in New York late Friday night. Fabelaktiv, which produces the program for Norwegian state televison  NRK, competed with productions from the U.S., Brazil, Canada and Thailand.

Culture minister Hadia Tajik said to NTB that she is very happy with the Norwegian effort and the award is an important recognition of Norwegian productions’ quality in an international context. 

In Energikampen,  five teams compete to see who know most about energy. The program has been aired on NRK Super, and it involves children and young people across the country to learn more about energy and climate.

An Emmy Award, or simply Emmy, is a television production award, and is considered the television equivalent to the Academy Awards (for film), the Tony Award (for theatre), and the Grammy Awards (for music).

A majority of Emmys are presented in various sectors of the American television industry. As such, the awards are presented in various area-specific ceremonies held annually throughout the year. The two ceremonies that usually receive the most media coverage are the Primetime Emmys and the Daytime Emmys, primarily recognizing excellence in American primetime and daytime entertainment programming, respectively. Other notable Emmy Award ceremonies include those honoring national sports programming, national news and documentary shows, national business and financial reporting, and technological and engineering achievements in television. Regional Emmy Awards are also presented throughout the country at various times through the year, recognizing excellence in local and state-to-state television. In addition, International Emmys are awarded to recognize excellence in TV programming produced and initially aired outside the United States.
