The nomination deadline is quickly approaching for the Gold & Silver Circle Class of 2020. Nominations will be accepted until April 15. As our Chapter’s Awards Chairperson Wayne Freedman (SC ’02) has always said, the Gold & Silver Circles are “our chapter’s Broadcasting Halls of Fame.”
The Silver Circle is an honor society that recognizes those who have been actively engaged in television for at least 25 or 50 years, have distinguished themselves in their careers and have made a significant contribution to the TV industry and to the community. At least half of that time needs to be in the San Francisco/Northern California Chapter of The National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences.
The Gold Circle honors individuals who have been actively engaged in television broadcasting for 50 years or more (with at least half of those years in the Chapter region) and who have fulfilled the same criteria as Silver Circle nominees. Gold Circle inductees are elected by the NATAS Chapter Board of Governors.
Silver Circle inductees are elected by previous inductees of the Silver Circle. Gold Circle inductees are elected by the Chapter’s Board of Governors.
Neither the candidate nor the nominating individual need be a member of NATAS. And yes, you can even nominate yourself!
