The KQED Arts & Culture and Science teams receive Emmy Awards for the second consecutive year.
San Francisco, CA -- KQED has been honored with two Northern California Emmy® awards by the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences (NATAS). The 49th Emmy® ceremony, held Saturday, June 6, for the first time virtually via livestream, honored excellence in all fields of television and online production.
KQED Arts & Culture received an Emmy for “Portraits of Napa Workers: Arlene Correa Valencia” in the Public/Current/Community Affairs-Feature/Segment category. The video features Mexican artist Arleene Correa Valencia, who strives to show the resilience and tireless work ethic of her Latinx community. The episode is part of KQED Arts’ Represent series, which profiles artists who celebrate and uplift the experiences of their communities.
“I’m thrilled that KQED Arts & Culture has once again been recognized by the Northern California Emmys for our work and commitment to the Bay Area’s diverse artistic communities,” said David Markus, Executive in Charge for KQED Arts & Culture.
KQED Science’s Deep Look won an Emmy award for “The Curious Webspinner Insect Knits a Cozy Home” in the Health/Science/Environment-Feature/Segment category. The video showed how female webspinners build their own shelter with super-fine silk from their front feet. A collaboration between KQED Science and PBS, the Deep Look series explores some of nature’s biggest mysteries by going incredibly small.
“I’m so proud of our Deep Look team for their fourth Emmy win and their dedication to producing quality educational programming,” said Sue Ellen McCann, Executive in Charge of KQED Science.
