On his Individual Achievement award, Peter Rabbit Art Director Stephen Robinson said,

“It is a privilege to work on such a revered property as Beatrix Potter’s Peter Rabbit. We wanted to honour Beatrix Potter’s work and bring her love for Cumbria’s Lake District to life on screen, and we hope that we have captured that in the series.”

“To win an Emmy® for Individual Contribution is humbling in the extreme and I can only offer a massive thanks to all those many individuals who have made this happen,” stated Peter Rabbit 2D Designer Eddie Gribbin.

“Adventure, excitement and never giving up is as true for the story of Peter Rabbit as it was working on it. To be honoured in such a prestigious way for a project that was a pleasure to be a part of is completely overwhelming,” stated Peter Rabbit Storyboard Supervisor Mårten Jönmark.
