Pritt Entertainment Group Receives Two Emmy Nominations
Downtown Akron-based creative agency Pritt Entertainment Group (PEG) received two Emmy nominations for the 2020 NATAS Lower Great Lakes Chapter Emmy® Awards. The nominees were announced on Monday, May 4th on the NATAS Lower Great Lakes website. This is the first time PEG has had multiple videos nominated in the same year, previously receiving single nominations in 2018 and 2019. "We couldn't be more excited to have two pieces that we worked on in 2019 receive Emmy nominations. Both of these videos were truly inspirational stories to tell and took incredible team efforts to bring to life," said Ryan Pritt, PEG President and Co-Founder. "We're proud of both pieces and are so lucky to have great partners, like Akron Children's Hospital and Akron Civic Commons, who gave us the opportunity to help tell these stories and collaborated with us each step of the way."
