Ketchikan films win regional Emmys

Two films from a documentary series about Ketchikan won regional Emmy awards during an awards ceremony Saturday in Seattle.

The films are part of the Ketchikan Story Project series, a Ketchikan Visitors Bureau project funded by the Ketchikan Gateway Borough to provide information about Ketchikan for visitors.

“Ketchikan: the Timber Years” won for best historical or cultural program, with trophies handed over to producer Deby Santos and writer/producer Laurel Lindahl. Richard A. Cooper is the Director of Photography and Patti Mackey the Executive Producer.

“Ketchikan: the Bush Pilots” won in the post-production director category, and that Emmy went to Cooper.

In 2013, “Ketchikan Our Native Legacy” won two regional Emmys. Other segments in the Story Project series focus on fishing and the artists.
