'Behind the scenes' promo earns Emmy nod in new interactive category

Posted: Updated:

PHOENIX -- Each year, the NATAS Chapters across the country recognize and reward excellence in their broadcasting communities. For more than 30 years, the Rocky Mountain Southwest Chapter has done this through the annual Rocky Mountain Emmy Awards.

This year, a special piece on azfamily.com was nominated in a first-of-its-kind category -- Special Achievement in Interactivity.

Congratulations to Jim Carr, Vique Rojas, Lori Santa Maria and Sarah Loukata for their stellar work on "I 'Like' Good Morning Arizona!," which is in an interactive behind-the-scenes look at the Emmy-nominated promo campaign "Start Every Day with a Good Morning, Arizona."

The Rocky Mountain Emmy Awards is not a competition in the traditional sense. Entries do not compete against each other. Rather, each is judged individually on its own merit against a standard of excellence. There is no greater honor the Chapter can bestow on its members.

The Rocky Mountain Emmy Awards will be presented during a gala event on Oct. 15.

Best of luck to all of the nominees.
