In 2015 Emma won a NSW and ACT ACS Gold Award for her work on ‘We Will’ and a Silver Award for ‘Infused Honey’ in the Web Content and New Media category. She won her first Gold Tripod at the ACS National awards for ‘We Will’ in 2016 and her first feature film, ‘Zelos’ was in competition for the 2017 AACTA awards.
