Emmy Awards Galas

Call for Entries


EMMY® Competition 2014

Thanks to everyone who entered!
We have a record number of entries this year – as in, more entries than at any time since our chapter was formed back in 1986! ┬áThe list of entries is finally posted – Awards tab, top of this page – along with information about nomination announcements and the gala.


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.

Silver and Gold Circle Nominations

Do you know someone in the business who’s made a substantial contribution for 25 – or even 50 – years? Nominations come from you! Please contact the office for details, and let’s give these outstanding individuals the recognition they deserve!

Scholarship Opportunity

The National NATAS organization is honoring legendary broadcasters Mike Wallace and Jim McKay by awarding scholarships in their names to college-bound students aspiring to careers in television.

Connect with the National NATAS Organization
