In 2017 the same department was nominated at the International Emmy’s for The Panama Papers. SVT has also been awarded for our factual entertainment content at the awards, with Wild Kids and Marrying Mum and Dad as well as The Great Swedish Adventure. In 2014 Nima Sarvestani’s No Burqas Behind Bars won Best TV Documentary.

Deceptive Diplomacy was also awarded Best TV investigation at Prix Europa in 2019, where Marcus Lindeen’s The Raft was awarded Best TV Documentary - and the fiction series The Days the Flowers Bloom received a special commendation. At Prix Europa SVT has made a mark in the current affairs, documentary and Prix Iris categories with special commendations for The General (Current Affairs, 2016) and Blood Sisters (TV Documentary, 2016) and an award for Abuse and the UN (Current Affairs, 2017).

2019 also proved to be successful for our sports documentaries as Zlatan – for Sweden with the times won CIVIS Media Award in the Football and integration category, and The History of Hockey was awarded at Milano Sports Movie and TV Festival – where The Right to Play Football was given an honorary mention. The year prior Rainbow Heroes was embraced by the international public service community at INPUT in Brooklyn (USA).
