      2018 Elly Awards

      The 2018 Elly Awards is an evening of star-studded glamour as we celebrate and showcase Hollywood in Pittsburgh. The awards honor emerging talent, creative young adults, innovative organizations, and loyal Pittsburgh natives—the people behind Pittsburgh’s thriving entertainment industry. All proceeds benefit Steeltown Entertainment Project. Founded in 2003, Steeltown Entertainment Project's mission is to forge a vibrant and sustainable entertainment industry in southwestern Pennsylvania. In October of 2003, Steeltown hosted the Pittsburgh Entertainment Summit where over a dozen of Pittsburgh's top entertainment luminaries discussed ways to help their hometown become more of a player in the entertainment industry. Following that discussion, Steeltown initiated efforts to ensure that Pittsburgh would become a world-class regional production hub.
