MUMBAI: Jakers! The Adventures of Piggley Winks has won a Daytime Emmy Awards for Outstanding Children's Animated Program. Crest Animation Studios provided all the overseas services like modelling, rigging, texturing, animation, lighting, rendering and compositing for this series.

Jakers! The Adventures of Piggley Winks is a 3D, computer animated series that follows the adventure of a spunky eight-year-old pig named Piggley and his friends Dannan the Duck and Ferny the Bull, who live on a farm in Ireland.

The award was conferred at the 33rd Annual Creative Craft Daytime Emmy Awards on 22 April. The 33rd Annual Daytime Emmy Awards is a presentation of the National Television Academy in cooperation with the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences.

Crest Animation Studios CEO A K Madhavan said, "It is a matter of great pride for us to be recognised for our quality of work by one of the most powerful body representing the American Television Industry. We have won accolades in the past like the BAFTA award and an ANNIE nomination for our work in Jakers! The Adventures of Piggley Winks. We have also won the Apsara Award for Tenali Rama; it is a special feeling, to be one of the best among the international players."

Crest is moving ahead on its way to become a globally recognized Computer Graphics Imaging (CGI) animation studio. Crest’s US-based subsidiary, RichCrest Animation (RCA), and Lions Gate Entertainment (LGE) have announced a three-picture co-production and co-financing arrangement to produce three state-of-the-art animated feature films for worldwide theatrical release.

RCA and LGE would equally share the cost of production, as well as the profits. The rights to the first film under the agreement – Sylvester and the Magic Pebble, based on the Caldecott Medal-winning story by William Steig (the creator of the blockbuster Shrek) have been acquired, and the film is in development.
