A mobile game created by Birmingham-based Maverick Television has won global acclaim at the 2015 International Digital Emmys.
The Digbeth-based company took home the 'Digital Program: Children & Young People' category at the ceremony in Cannes for its work on Reverse the Odds.
The game is a free puzzle where on each level a player helps in the fight against cancer and strives to rebuild the world of a loveable race of creatures.
Developed by Maverick and Chunk Digital for Channel 4, the game is a partnership with Cancer Research UK and Zooniverse and is aimed at players of all ages.
In playing the game, every user aids Cancer Research UK by analysing real cancer slides as they progress through the game story.
The more people play the game and the longer they play for, the more Cancer Research UK's scientists are helped.
Since it launched in October, more than 2.5 million slides have been analysed by players across the world.
Creative director Dan Jones said: "We're absolutely delighted that three years of incredibly hard work from the teams at Maverick, Cancer Research UK, Chunk and Channel 4 has been recognised by the Digital Emmys.
"Reverse the Odds brought together a TV show, innovative game, citizen science project, YouTube talent and social media reach all with the intention of helping beat cancer sooner, and we're over the moon with the impact it's having, with more than three million cells being analysed since launch."
The game has also been nominated in the digital creativity category of the 2015 Television Craft BAFTAs.
