2021 Call For Entries

We’ll be sending an email alert when that happens, and posting to social media. The upcoming Call includes new categories and a streamlined, easy-to-use format that’s compatible with a variety of platforms. And NATAS members earn a discount of 50% on entry fees!
Membership Renewal Discount through the end of October: One year at $60 and two years renewal at $110. Log in to your account profile

Website Redesign

Major facelift due to arrive in the first couple weeks of December here at emmyawards.tv. Not only will we be looking tanned, rested and ready, but it’ll be tons easier to find the information you’re looking for. We are (mildly) coordinating with website redesigns at the Upper Midwest Chapter and the Mid-America Chapter, with others of our crowd of 19  following along in the new year.

Production Resources

Production resources for members of the television community impacted by COVID-19. NATAS has gathered a list of resources for production/freelance workers. This list will grow as we continue to source additional information.

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.
