Emmy Awards Galas

Call for Entries


EMMY® Competition 2014

Congratulations to all our nominees and 2014 Emmy Award Recipients!

The 28th annual Heartland Regional Emmy® Awards and Silver Circle presentations were held Saturday, July 12, at the Seawell Grand Ballroom at the Denver Center for the Performing Arts and at the Bud Wilkinson Event Center at the Jim Thorpe Museum in Oklahoma City. Over 600 professionals from the chapter’s 5-state region gathered to celebrate the presentation of 104 Emmy® awards in more than 100 areas of excellence and in student achievement. Kicking off the event was the chapter’s first Red Carpet Arrival, hosted by award-winning Arts and Entertainment journalist Eden Lane.
The Heartland Chapter inducted 5 new members into the prestigious Silver Circle, which recognizes 25 years of outstanding contribution to the television industry. This year’s inductees are: John Goheen, celebrated videojournalist and instructor; Anne Trujillo, News Anchor with KMGH; Greg Moody, formerly Critic-at-Large for KCNC; Mike LeClaire, award-winning photographer at KMGH, and Ken Miller, EP with ROOT Sports Rocky Mountain.
This evening’s presentation was produced by YGHDTV in Denver, and made available via live stream to all NATAS chapters across the country.


Our next opportunity comes this summer with the Phoenix, Chicago and Suncoast chapters (Rounds 3, 4 and 5). Remember, Emmy Entrants: by entering the Heartland competition you agree to act as a peer judge. A good rule of thumb? As many categories as you enter is the number of categories you’ll judge. All judging is online, so it’s remarkably easy to see what the rest of the country is doing, and get some ideas for your own work.
