The Portland Press Herald and several of its staff members have been nominated for regional Emmy awards by the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences, Boston/New England Chapter.

Videographer Amelia Kunhardt and reporter Susan Kimball have been nominated in the feature news/light feature category for “Old Man of the Sea,” a story about 84-year-old lobsterman Andy Gove, who has no plans to retire.

Kimball and photographer Gabe Souza are up for an award in the societal concerns feature/segment category for their special report “Maine’s Heroin Crisis.”

Kunhardt was also nominated in that category for “The Right Place at the Right Time,” a report on a Portland motel clerk who in 2002 was credited with helping police identify a fugitive couple who were wanted for the murder of their infant daughter.

Kunhardt’s video essay “Sand, Surf and Sun,” which profiles the oceanfront resort town of Old Orchard Beach, has been nominated for best video essay. And photographer Shawn Ouellette’s “A mother’s wish: Dying at Home” is up for an Emmy award in the health/science feature segment category.

The award winners will be announced on May 30 in Boston.

Kunhardt won a Boston/New England Emmy award in 2014 for a documentary she produced on the shooting of an 18-year-old by a Maine state trooper in West Paris. “Three Shots on Roy Road” won in the societal concerns category.
