Our Mission: The NATAS Heartland Chapter honors, recognizes, and promotes excellence and innovation in the creation of visual media through the presentation of the prestigious Emmy® Award.
We are a membership based organization dedicated to advancing and awarding excellence in all areas of media and television, through our Emmy Awards competition, student production competition, scholarships, and programs. We are one of 19 regional chapters across the US, covering Colorado, Oklahoma, Kansas, Nebraska and Wyoming.
Thank you to everyone who entered our 2023 competition!
What are the next steps you ask? Entries go through the certification process through early March and then off to be judged through the end of April. We'll be ready to announce nominations near the end of May--stay tuned for where and when and how!
Make sure your calendar is marked for our big day--our annual Emmy® Gala!
This year it will be on July 15th at the Seawell Grand Ballroom in Denver and the First Americans' Museum in Oklahoma City.
This is a great way to get your business's name out there and associated with an organization that promotes excellence! Please contact the office if you are interested in one of our many sponsorship opportunities.
