Season two of the locally made teen-oriented series Nowhere Boys has been awarded one of TV's top honours.

The program received the International Emmy Kids Award for a Series at the 4th International Emmy Kids Awards.

Executive Producer/creator Tony Ayres, executive producer Michael McMahon and producer Beth Frey from Matchbox Pictures were on hand to collect the award at a ceremony held in Cannes.

Nowhere Boys traces the adventures of four teenage boys who return home after being lost in a forest only to learn that they now exist in a parallel world where they were never born.

The series has received multiple awards including the Logie Award for Most Outstanding Children's Program in 2014 and 2015. It also won the Screen Producers Australia Award for Best Children's Television Production in 2014 and 2015.

Nowhere Boys series one and two were broadcast on ABC3, with the third season due to go into production shortly and screened on ABC3 and iView in late 2016.
