What is Television?
Television is no longer defined by a box that resides in the family living room. Television is happening everywhere we go. The Heartland Emmy® Chapter honors original content created for traditional broadcast/cablecast mediums as well as non-traditional and emerging platforms for broadband and portable delivery. Television is ‘moving pictures on a screen.’ If you are a producer (no matter your craft discipline) of original material intended for a Heartland audience, then this is your home for television excellence.
Silver and Gold Circle 2017
Recognize your peers for their outstanding contribution to our industry by submitting a nomination for the Silver (25 yrs) or Gold (50 yrs) Circle. Deadline February 3rd for inclusion in our 31st Annual Awards Gala in July.
Memorialize your contribution to an Emmy-winning production with a stunning wall plaque. There is no statute of limitations for ordering these, even for past years’ winning productions. All plaques are a beautiful rosewood with a polished piano-key finish and engraved brass plate; all feature a replica statue (5″ or 9″ – price varies). Contact the office for more information.
The success of the Emmy® Awards process depends on the willingness of qualified professionals to serve as judges.
By entering, you agree to serve as a judge when asked, and that judging must occur during calendar year 2017.
- If you enter once, you’ll need to judge once
- If you enter twice, you’ll need to judge twice
- If you enter three or more times, you’ll need to judge at least 3 times
If you don’t meet your judging requirement, your entry fees will increase ($25 for members, $80 for non-members) the next time you enter the competition.
There are typically 6-9 opportunities to judge other chapters’ entries during the year (we call them Rounds) and all entrants are notified via email when it’s time.
What’s the time commitment for judging? 30 minutes to 2 hours, depending on the category; judging can be done anywhere you have a computer; it’s all online.
When you judge 3 or more times during a calendar year, you’ll earn a $10 discount on membership dues for the coming year. There is no limit to the amount of judging you can do, as long as you’re qualified to judge the categories you choose.
We polled several of our long-time judges, to ask them Why Judge? Here’s what they said:
- “I like to compare my work with other markets around the country”
- “It expands the judging pool, which is how I want my work judged”
- “I get a ton of ideas from watching other people’s work”
- “Doing it online is super-easy for my schedule; I don’t have to do it all at once”
