Entries are judged by the same professional organization that selects Emmy winners, and presented at the Northwest Regional Emmy Awards.
Ballard HIgh School's Ariahna Ghormley, Louis Weissman and Mackenzie Wright won for Photography/Editing on their commercial for Crash Landing Pizza. Walker Evans, Elise Neroutsos, James Vitz-Wong and Sam Weller won the Long Form Fiction category for their sinister short, The Craft.
This makes the sixth year in a row that students in the Ballard High School Video Production Program have been winners at the event.
