Enter the Heartland Emmy Awards Competition
THIS PAGE IS LAST YEAR’S INFORMATION – KEPT HERE FOR THOSE WHO ARE NEW TO THE PROCESS AND CURIOUS TO SEE WHAT’S UP. THIS YEAR’S COMPETITION OPENS MID-DECEMBER 2015.
Deadline Wednesday, February 4, 2015: 5PM MST
To enter the Heartland Emmy Awards, your work must have had its first distribution in, and have been produced primarily for, an audience in (one of) these DMAs: Denver / Oklahoma City (large markets); Tulsa / Wichita-Hutchinson / Omaha / Colorado Springs-Pueblo (medium markets); Lincoln/Hastings-Kearney / Topeka / Grand Junction-Montrose / Cheyenne-Scottsbluff / Durango (small markets); within the designated eligibility period. All NATAS members receive a significant discount on entry fees, especially those working in medium and small markets; you don’t have to be a member to enter the competition.
Determine if your work is eligible, and choose your category, by reviewing the 2015 CALL FOR ENTRIES. Questions? Contact the office: 303.722.0916.
Put together a complete list of people who were involved in the production, and whose names will be on the entry form; only those names are eligible to receive a statue, ever. Each name incurs an entry fee – discounted for members. It helps to make sure everyone has renewed his/her membership before you enter IF you’re looking for that discount!
Entrants in the Student Achievement Awards (Category 61) will pay a processing fee only (no membership discount).
