The documentaries Twin Sisters (pictured) and Correspondent: Identity and Exile were among the winners at 54th annual Golden Nymph Awards in Monaco.

The awards, which are part of the Monte Carlo Television Festival, were handed out on Wednesday (June 11) and honor the best in television news documentaries, mini-series, drama and comedy.

Norway’s Moment Film picked up the Best Current Affairs Documentary prize for Twin Sisters, which also won the audience award at last year’s International Documentary Film Festival Amsterdam. The film recounts the story of twin sisters from China who were separated at birth and meet for the first time at age eight in Norway.

Al Jazeera English picked up the Best News Documentary award for Correspondent: Identity and Exile, a two-part series about Zionism in America; and France’s Georama TV Productions won a special prize for Deadly Depths, a documentary about chemical weapons that litter the ocean floor.
