“Shelley Birse, one of Australia’s leading screenwriters, has won this year’s top writing award at the Australian Writers’ Guild’s 49th Annual AWGIE Awards, for the second season of the ABC’s cyber-thriller, The Code.
The Code also received the AWGIE Award for the Television: Miniseries – Original category. The first season of The Code took out the Major Award in 2014, and this year’s award makes it the only series in history to have been recognised by two Major Awards for both of its seasons.”
