SA series wins three Daytime Emmy Awards


The eight-part Netflix series, ‘Penguin Town’, follows a group of endearing penguins as they make their homes in the gardens of Simon's Town in the Western Cape.

Nominated for six Daytime Emmy Awards, its producers picked up three wins for “Outstanding Travel, Adventure and Nature Series”, “Outstanding Cinematography”, and “Outstanding Sound Mixing and Sound Editing”.

South African filmmaker and ‘Penguin Town' producer Cayley Christos was in the USA to accept the awards. Christos is the owner of the production company Red Rock Films which produced ‘Penguin Town’. 

Congratulations Team SA!

And while the series is undoubtedly entertaining, it also aims to create awareness of the plight of the African Penguin.

African penguins are found only off the coastlines of South Africa and Namibia. As stated on https://www.aquarium.co.za/species/entry/african_penguin, "African penguins are currently regarded as vulnerable to extinction. Oil spills are a major threat to their survival."
