A Mississippi Valley State University commercial has been nominated for a 2019 Southeast Regional Emmy Award.
The university’s “Valley in Motion,” commercial, created to highlight its new slogan, “One Goal. One Team. One Valley …In Motion,” was produced by MVSU’s Office of Communications and Marketing and filmed and edited by Broadcast Media Group, Inc. (BMG) of Starkville.
MVSU is the only college or university in the commercial category and is the only historically black school on this year’s list of nominees.
BMG had sent the commercial for nomination. The Regional Southeast Emmy Chapter is one of 19 chapters in the United States recognizing television excellence at the local and regional level of The National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences.
“We had a great time working with MVSU’s communications and marketing team,” said BMG Executive Producer and Filmmaker Robbie Coblentz. “They were able to put together an amazing concept for us to execute. We’re looking forward to attending the awards ceremony, and we’re hoping to bring back a win.”
Brittany Davis-Green, MVSU’s director of communications and marketing, said the idea for the project came about “to bring meaning to our new university mantra set by our president, Dr. Jerryl Briggs.”
“Our talented communications and marketing team was able to come up with a concept that really speaks to the holistic educational experience MVSU provides. We’re thankful to BMG for bringing our idea to life, and we’re excited about the Emmy nomination,” Davis-Green said.
The awards ceremony will be held June 15 in Atlanta. The nominated commercial can be viewed online at bit.ly/30cw880.
