TranterGrey Media Group was nominated for four Emmy Awards and won two Emmy Awards on Saturday, June 6, 2015 at the Southeast Emmy Awards Gala held in Atlanta at the Grand Hyatt Buckhead.

TranterGrey Media Group won the first Emmy for the “Text & Drive” PSA in the Community/Public Service (PSA)- Single Spot Category. This PSA aired on Broadcast Television and was a campaign that 1 Hour Optical used to remind people to not text and drive. The commercial went viral on Facebook with 1,066,227 shares and reached over 5,062,940 views on YouTube. We are so thankful to our client 1 Hour Optical for giving us the freedom to be creative and to produce a memorable public service announcement. 

The second Emmy was in the “Community/Public Service (PSA)- Campaign” category and was titled “Teen Driving PSAs.” This campaign consisted of the same anti-texting commercial listed above  and an anti-teen drinking commercial  . Advantage Behavioral Health System contracted with us to create a dramatic video that they could use to help prevent underage drinking. The campaign has been very successful and we are very appreciative that they partnered with us to create this important message.
