Prairie Public documentary wins best of show award

FARGO — A documentary that aired on Prairie Public Broadcasting in October 2010 has won a best of show award in the nature/environment documentary category.

“Global Energy and Carbon: Tracking Our Footprint,” has received a 2012 Platinum Best of Show Aurora Award. It was coproduced by Prairie Public Broadcasting and the Plains CO2 Reduction with support from the U.S. Department of Energy.

The 30-minute documentary demonstrates global energy use by average families in industrialized, emerging, and developing economies. It also explores carbon management options that ensure adequate energy access for the world's growing population.

The Aurora Awards are given as part of an international competition designed to recognize film and video excellence. Entrants are judged by panels of working film and video professionals.
