The ABC has scored four nominations for the 2021 Content Innovation Awards, which celebrate the world’s best broadcasters, producers and distributors.

Investigative series EXPOSED: The Ghost Train Fire, which exposed the truth behind the 1979 fatal fire at Sydney’s iconic Luna Park, is in the running for the coveted best Documentary Series Award.

Firestarter: The Story of Bangarra, a feature-length documentary about Australia’s leading Indigenous contemporary dance company, has been nominated for the Best Representation on Screen Award in honour of its focus on First Nations people and culture.

Popular ABC comedy series Fisk is a finalist for Series Launch of the Year, in recognition of its impact across television ratings, marketing and social media.

The nomination is the second international gong this month for the hit legal comedy, which was recently named Best Series in the Comedies Competition at Series Mania, Europe’s largest TV festival.

ABC Kids’ series Big Words, Small Stories has been nominated for Best Animated Kids Program, which honours shows that have enjoyed widespread domestic success or made an impact internationally with sales across the board.

Jessica Ellis, ABC Commercial Head of Content Sales & Distribution, said:

“ABC Commercial represents the best in Australian content across the spectrum of genres and we are thrilled that a host of ABC programs across comedy, documentary and children’s content have received this international recognition.

“We look forward to sharing these exceptional programs with audiences around the world and are confident they will be as loved internationally as they have been at home.”
