The Faces of Fire public service announcement (PSA) featuring Princella Lee-Bridges was nominated for a regional EMMY® award. The winners were announced last week, and although our entry did not win, it was definitely an honor to have been selected for nomination among hundreds of other entries. It also provided the opportunity to bring the home fire sprinkler message to a large and diverse audience.
The Southeast EMMY® awards celebrate excellence in media at the local and regional level. The Faces of Fire PSA was nominated for television spot announcements excellence in the community/PSA campaign category. Our PSA was one of six finalists.
Present at the gala to receive the award was the “star” of the PSA Princella Lee-Bridges and Steven Minichiello, the producer who said, “We did not win. But the happiness that Princella showed was over the top.....she said it was the highlight of her life since the fire.” In that sense, we were most definitely winners.
