​Mecklenburg County Nominated for Two EMMY Awards


EMMY awardMecklenburg County's video work has resulted in two EMMY Award nominations.

Mecklenburg County Public Information received two Mid-South Regional EMMY Award nominations for a recycling video and a composite of animation projects produced this year. Winners will be announced Feb.15, 2020 at the Mid-South Regional EMMY Awards banquet in Nashville.

Public Information's Creative Services Team has been using more and more animation over the last few years to teach and promote multiple County programs and services.

"Our creative team has done a tremendous job using technology and animation to make videos people pay attention to," said Public Information Director Danny Diehl.

The EMMY-nominated project Animation Composite features highlights from several of the County's public education campaigns including back to school safety, recreation information and the Assessor's Office tax revaluation process.

The EMMY-nominated Recycling Woes project is part of the Land Use and Environmental Services Agency's (LUESA) campaign to teach residents how to properly recycle. The video includes a song composed by Public Information staff and performed by a band of animated characters made of recyclable items.

Award nominations were submitted in August in the Interstitial Programming and Craft Animation categories.
