Two MediaStorm produced projects are among the Nominees announced yesterday for the 29th Annual News and Documentary Emmy Awards.
Crisis Guide: Darfur, produced for Council on Foreign Relations, was nominated in the New Approaches To News & Documentary Programming: Current News Coverage Category.
The Darfur guide is the second in a series of interactive guides to the most complex issues and conflicts on the planet. The six-chapter project includes a multimedia narrative, interactive maps and timelines, and extensive information on the situation in Darfur.
The Marlboro Marine, produced with The Los Angeles Times, was nominated in the New Approaches To News & Documentary Programming: Documentaries Category.
Los Angeles Times photojournalist Luis Sinco’s photograph of Marine Lance Corporal James Blake Miller became an icon of the Iraq War. This is the story of how Miller tries to heal the scars of war and how two lives became connected by a photograph. This project can also be viewed on MediaStorm.
Winners will be announced Monday, September 22, in New York City. Visit emmyonline.org for full information.
