VICE Canada won three Canadian Screen Awards on Tuesday for its VICELAND programming.
VICELAND shows Terror, RISE, and Abandoned all took home wins last night at the Canadian Screen Awards ceremony in Toronto.
Terror won for best News or Information Program, beating out perennial favourites such as CBC's The Fifth Estate and Marketplace.
RISE took home the award for Best Documentary Program. In her acceptance speech, RISE director Michelle Latimer gave a stirring call to action to make space for Indigenous stories.
And the visually striking series Abandoned, in which skateboarder Rick McCrank explores forgotten urban spaces, won for Best Photography, Documentary or Factual.
VICE Canada was nominated for 13 awards total this year for VICELAND programming at the Canadian Screen Awards. VICE Canada Reports has also been nominated under digital programming for Best Web Program or Series Non-Fiction at the awards. The CSA ceremonies continue this week with Nirvanna the Band the Show still up for three nominations.
