ASRC 2018 Ad Campaign Wins Emmy Award

Arctic Slope Regional Corporation (ASRC) is honored to have won an Emmy Award from the Northwest Chapter of the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences for its 2018 television commercial campaign, featuring the communities of Anaktuvuk Pass, Kaktovik and Nuiqsut. The 56th-annual award ceremony was held Saturday, June 8th in Seattle, Washington.

“These beautiful commercials highlight the fact that while ASRC continues to diversify and expand its operations, our home is in Alaska and we continue to be guided by our Iñupiaq values and the lessons from our elders,” said Rex A. Rock Sr., ASRC president and CEO. “I’d like to thank Fenton Rexford, Catherine Edwards and Archie Ahkiviana for their involvement and to our external affairs team for putting the commercials together. I’m really pleased to see they’ve been so well-received.”

This is the third Emmy for the corporation. Last year, the corporation won an Emmy for its long- format documentary “True North, the Story of ASRC”, which aired statewide in 2017. ASRC also won an Emmy for its commercial campaign in 2015.
