This win follows the award that Aisling’s Diary – The TV Series earned last year at the same competition and the two previous IFTA nominations in 2009 and 2010 and C21 best format nomination at Cannes.

The series has been complemented by Aisling’s Diary – The Book, published by Penguin Books. Internationally, Aisling’s Diary has been sold by CR Entertainment to ABC Australia and SVT in Sweden.

KidScreen is the biggest North American market for pre-school and kids TV Programming.

Aisling’s Diary has become Ireland’s most successful Irish teen TV series recognised by the industry internationally, collecting an impressive list of international nominations and awards,” said series producer Triona Campbell.
