2017 International Emmy® News & Current Affairs Winners Announced

New York, October 5, 2017 – The 2017 International Emmy for News was presented tonight to Inside Aleppo – Battle for Aleppo (United Kingdom). The Emmy for Current Affairs was presented to Exposure: Saudi Arabia Uncovered (United Kingdom). The International Emmys were presented by the International Academy of Television Arts & Sciences in conjunction with the US News Emmys during a ceremony which took place at Lincoln Center, in New York City.

“A free and committed press corps is the most important bulwark against repression and tyranny,” said Bruce L. Paisner, President & CEO of the International Academy of Television Arts & Sciences, in presenting the Emmys. “We congratulate the winning reporters, cameramen and crews behind these outstanding reports for their courageous journalism.”

Inside Aleppo – Battle for Aleppo produced by ITN / Channel 4 News, won the News category. This story covers the battle for Aleppo-the most brutal in the five-year Syrian war. A Channel 4 News journalist & filmmaker was inside the besieged city with unrivaled access to the horror, chaos, and civilian tragedy unfolding.

Exposure: Saudi Arabia Uncovered produced by Hardcash Productions / ITV / WGBH/Frontline won the Current Affairs category. This film reveals the hidden reality inside one of the world’s most secretive and strict Islamic regimes. With unprecedented access to an underground network of young activists, it uncovers a society where opposition is beginning to take shape.
