This year’s grand prize winner of the US$25, 000 Nickelodeon Australia and industry org SPAA’s Land a Pilot contest is Insomniacs by Shane Elsmore and Simon Adams.

The creepy kids series was selected from a group of seven finalists from around Australia, and beat out a total of 90 submissions to score the prize.

The annual competition calls for new kids series concepts that will appeal to 10- to 12-year-olds and can coverlive-action, comedy, drama or reality genres.

The winners will now work with Nickelodeon over the next six months to further develop the series and produce a pilot.
