Join us in congratulating the AETN production department team on its Platinum and Gold wins in the Spring 2014 Aurora Awards competition! 

The Aurora Awards, which is an international competition designed to recognize excellence in the film and video industries, are judged by working professionals from the continental U.S. and are working professionals who uphold a high standard of excellence. Films entered in the competition are evaluated on professional execution, quality content and creativity.

“Champion Trees” — a 60-minute documentary exploring the largest trees of their species in Arkansas and highlighting the artistic documentation of Hot Springs’ Linda Williams Palmer — earned Platinum Best of Show in the Documentary-Cultural category. The judges remarked on the film’s beautiful videography, appealing and engaging interviews, and overall excellence.

“Bayou Bartholomew,” a one-hour documentary featuring the longest bayou in the world and hosted by Chuck Dovish, won a Gold Award in the Nature/Environment category. Judges praised the film’s cinematography, particular its editing and footage.

AETN is honored by the Aurora Awards committee’s recognition, and extremely proud of the excellent work of our dedicated production staff! We look forward to seeing many similar accomplishments in the future.
