2022 Call for Entries Opens Mid-December

If your video is being made available for the first time in 2021, you’ll be eligible to enter the 2022 Heartland Awards competition … IF that video was produced and intended for an audience in the Heartland Chapter and if it premiered here first. If it was produced for a different audience, your program belongs in another awards competition. Your intent must be clearly evident in the video itself and in the description of the entry. Digital, broadcast and cable are all eligible distribution methods, and must be clearly identified within the entry form.

Good News~

Thanks to our voting membership for filling three open spots on our Board of Governors with three outstanding people:  Juliana Broste and Julie Lucas were re-elected, while Lucas Ross is new to the board – but not new to our chapter. He’s a regional Emmy® award recipient, veteran of local Oklahoma City television, talented banjo player and a key component of our annual awards galas. Juliana you know as @travelingjules and as our 2nd VP, Program Chair and Trustee, and the estimable Julie Lucas is involved as a Trustee and as the National Secretary. Each elected board member serves a three-year term and is eligible to be re-elected twice.

More Good News!
