“This is Maritime Washington” videos win NW Emmy!

June 5, 2024 // Carson Meacham

We’re thrilled to share that “This is Maritime Washington“—a video campaign about the Maritime Washington National Heritage Area produced by Fishboat Media—received an Emmy Award from the Northwest Chapter of the National Academy for Television Arts & Sciences (NATAS)! We are incredibly proud to have collaborated on this series that showcases the diversity of experiences available to those living and visiting Washington’s saltwater shores. 

“This is Maritime Washington” was nominated in the PSA – Single Spot or Campaign category, which honors “excellence in announcements that effectively create awareness, focus interest on, or marshal support for worthy community causes or nonprofit organizations.” The award granted by NATAS is an incredible achievement honoring the dedicated and talented work of the Fishboat Media team: Jeremy Johnson, Tyler Rowe, and Samuel Wolfe.

Fishboat Media is a stellar visual storytelling collective that communicates our region’s rich maritime culture and diverse heritage from their home base in Port Townsend, Washington. To create these seven stories, Fishboat Media navigated the 3,000+ miles of Washington’s saltwater coastline that make up the heritage area, conducted dozens of interviews, and coordinated with many organizations behind the scenes. The combined effort created a truly unique campaign that continues to help raise awareness about the Maritime Washington National Heritage Area.

We’re incredibly grateful to the individuals and organizations who shared their time and experience with us in these videos, including the Swinomish Tribe, Washington State Parks, Washington State Ferries, the Schooner Adventuress, Chelsea Farms, and Haven Boatworks. This series couldn’t have shown the wonder and majesty of the heritage area without the gracious involvement of these organizations.

We’d also like to offer our special thanks to the M. J. Murdock Charitable Trust and Dr. Harrison Goodall, who financially supported this project. Their contributions to the Maritime Washington National Heritage Area will help people learn about and experience this important region for years to come.
