The Boston Globe won seven Emmy Awards at the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences' (NATAS) 35th Boston/New England Emmy Awards on Saturday, June 2. New England's largest newspaper had 15 nominees in nine Emmy(R) categories for visual and multimedia storytelling.

The Boston Globe has won 12 Boston/New England Regional Emmy(R) Awards in the past four years, and in 2010, was nominated for a national Emmy(R) Award for an online documentary about the late Senator Ted Kennedy.

Among this year's winners are Darren Durlach, who claimed multiple awards, including "Dancing Cop" in the outstanding photographer light feature category; Martin Gee and Durlach for outstanding arts/entertainment specialty report; Scott LaPierre for outstanding video journalist and outstanding historical/cultural feature; Darren Durlach, Lauren Frohne, Scott LaPierre, John Tlumacki and Aram Boghosian for outstanding politics/government specialty report for collaborative work on "Parents react to Boston school assignments"; and Dina Rudick in the outstanding photographer category for a composite of videos.

"The frontier of our journalism continues to expand," Globe editor Martin Baron said. "These awards signal that our pioneering work in video ranks at the top of the field. We're immensely gratified by the recognition. And we look forward to growing our multimedia storytelling, extending the Globe's award-winning journalism to meet our audience wherever it looks for news, in an ever-broadening array of formats."

According to the NATAS, the Emmy(R) Award is the most prestigious, peer-judged honor in television for outstanding creative achievement. The Boston/New England Regional Emmy(R) Award is comprised of all broadcast markets in Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, Vermont and the majority of Connecticut, excepting Fairfield County.

"These awards demonstrate The Boston Globe's commitment to producing great journalism in all its forms," Globe senior multimedia editor Thea Breite said. "We're fortunate to have such a talented group of video journalists who, day after day, produce a wide range of storytelling videos. Some of the best video journalism is now coming from newspapers. We are pleased that the Emmys have recognized the excellent work we do."

The Boston/New England Regional Emmy(R) Award cap a string of prestigious regional, national and international awards won by the Globe's editorial staff in the past year.

Other recent honors include: Wesley Morris' Pulitzer Prize for criticism, Peter Canellos' American Society of Newspaper Editors (ASNE) Award for editorial writing, and the Spotlight Team of investigative journalists' George Polk Award for Legal Reporting. BostonGlobe.com, the Globe's subscription website, was also recently named "World's Best Designed Website" by the Society for News Design, and received the regional 2012 Edward R. Murrow Award for best online news operation website, as well as the 2011 EPpy Awards for Best Daily Newspaper Website and Best Overall Website Design.
