Producer Definition

According to the Rules:

If not listed as eligible, anchors, reporters, directors, photographers, editors, assignment editors, hosts, writers, and qualified others may be eligible in categories 4 to 20 if their contributions are significant to the entry’s award-worthiness and they participated in a producer capacity according to the definition below.   

The producer(s) is defined as the person(s) most responsible for a program, from conception to execution. This can include research, planning, field producing, field directing, writing, shot-sheeting, associate producing, co-producing and supervising the edit. The intent is to present the award to the person directly involved in creating the program. For an Executive Producer, Senior Producer or Supervising Producer to be eligible, that individual must have been involved in the creative effort, not merely the one who approved the creative enterprise. Entrants may be required to provide documentation, including proof of performance affidavits or verified production credits, if deemed necessary by the Emmy® Judging/Rules Committee.

If added, the entrant’s role must be listed with a producer title that best fits what they did during the production. Did they serve as a co-producer, producer, associate producer, etc.?  Entrants may be required to provide documentation, including proof of performance affidavits or verified production credits, if deemed necessary by the Emmy® Judging/Rules Committee.
