KPU TV Sweeps Best of the Northwest Awards
March 23, 2015
In addition to the Overall Excellence award, KPU TV was also awarded Best of the Northwest in the Community Involvement category for their production of “Live in Ketchikan’s Ultimate Outdoor Challenge”. This category honors programs providing public outreach or the public participation and includes “on the street” interviews, live studio call-in, or any subject matter that is created through the shared efforts of many people. The Ultimate Outdoor Challenge was a cooperative effort by KPU TV, students from the Alaska Cast and Crew Advancement Program, Ketchikan High School, and Clover Pass Resort.
Three of KPU TV’s other productions won Honorable Mentions in the Best of the Northwest to include a domestic violence documentary titled “Unheard Voices, Unheard Wisdom,” KPU TV’s coverage of Fight Night 2014, and their television commercial, “This is Ketchikan.”
This prestigious awards contest honors outstanding programs telecast on or produced by community access or local origination television channels in the Northwest region (Alaska, Alberta, British Columbia, Idaho, Montana, Oregon, Utah, Washington, and Wyoming) of the Alliance for Community Media.
For over 20 years, Best of the Northwest has supported television programs that are made on a local level. Awards will be presented at the Alliance for Community Media Northwest Regional Conference on March 28, 2015, as part of the ACM – Northwest Region’s Summit in Tukwila, WA.
