The project earned the Emmy at the 34th Annual News & Documentary Emmy Awards held in New York City on October 1st. The project won in the category of “New Approaches: Documentaries,” beating out other finalists like CNN, The New York Times, and UNC Chapel Hill.

“To be on the same stage as some of the most courageous and talented journalists in the world is absolutely humbling,” said Joe Alexander, chief creative officer at The Martin Agency.” JFK really believed in the power of innovation. So this project continues our mission to extend and preserve JFK’s legacy through technology, especially the convergence of digital, mobile, and film.”
