Emmy® Awards Entry Deadline Is January 12th

Read The Rules Before Submitting


By Wayne Freedman
Awards Chair

Tick.
Tick.
Tick.

If you have yet to submit your Emmy® Award entries for this year, that is the sound of looming deadlines.

January 12: After that date, any entry or entrant that remains incomplete, including your Membership and Entry fees, will be subject to a $25 dollar reprocessing charge, or disqualification.

January 19:: Final date for submitting the video for those entries.

March 31: The final date to submit changes to your entries.

In your possibly last-minute rush to submit, please double-check the Call For Entries for subtle changes to rules and categories, this year. If you have any questions, please contact us.

Two Calls For Entries
Again, this year, our chapter has, with the blessing of the National Academy, created two separate Calls based on entry and recipient counts.

Last year, out of 739 English submissions, 213 (29%) received nominations, and 60 (8%) received statuettes.

From 212 Spanish submissions, last year, 95 (45%) received nominations, and 39 (18%) received statuettes.

In an effort to balance the competitions, we have added, subtracted, consolidated, and changed the descriptions of some categories with the goal of recognizing excellence in compliance with the national guidelines.

Even after these changes, anyone who entered last year can find categories for his or her work this year.

Changes In The English Call for Entries:
#12  News Special Program (New Category)
#21  Technology (Feature/Segment & Program/Special combined)
#23A  Sports News Feature/Segment (New Category)
#28   Director Live/Recorded Live (Post Production Directors can enter Program Categories)
Graphic Arts – Graphics & Animation (Deleted, artists can enter in News & Program Categories)

Changes In the Spanish Call for Entries:
#62  News Special Program (New Category)
#66  Lifestyle (Feature/Segment & Program/Special combined)
#67  Historic/Cultural (Feature/Segment & Program/Special combined)
#68  Public/Current/Community Affairs (Feature/Segment & Program/Special combined)
Sports One-Time Special (Deleted)
Sports Sporting Game-Live (Deleted)
On-Camera Talent-Sports Play-by-Play/Analyst (Deleted)
#78  Director Live/Recorded Live (Post Production Directors can enter Program Categories)
#80  Photographer (combined 24 hours and no time limit)
Graphic Arts – Graphics & Animation (Deleted, artists can enter in News & Program Categories)

Read The Call For Entries
Your Awards Committee has already begun certifying early submissions, and urges you to read the Call For Entries.

Note guidelines and specific requirements in your categories. Again, we stress, look closely at the rules, particularly in regard to duplicate entries and double-dipping. You do not want to receive a call from a member of the Awards Committee during certification. And, you do not want that $25 reprocessing fee.

In particular, if you are submitting a Composite, please remember to include the airdates for every cut or lift.  List them in the description section. Your submission will be incomplete without them.

Check The Master List
Additionally, please help your Awards Committee volunteers by reading the Master List of Entries after we publish it online. You are responsible for including all the names in your entries. We cannot make additions after we announce nominations.

Further, look closely at other submissions within your categories. If an entry strikes you as being inappropriate, please send a note to the Awards Committee, cite why, and we will look into it.

Your Awards Committee members look forward your entries this year.

Good luck!
