Futurikon’s toon skein “Minuscule,” Arte’s “Waste: A Nuclear Nightmare” and Canal Plus crime series “Spiral” nabbed top kudos at Monday night’s 9th Export Awards in Paris.

Handed out by promo org TV France Intl. and voted on by TV industryites worldwide, nods are handed out to top-rated programs that have sold in all major territories.

Season two of “Minuscule,” which mixes animation and live action, revolves around the day-to-day existence of insects that are modelled in 3D and set against live-action scenery. It’s sold to more than 80 territories, including the U.S., Canada, Italy and Spain.

It’s been nabbed by 23 TV nets, including Sundance Channel in the U.S.
