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.
