In determining whether content distributed online, without geographic restriction, is more
appropriate for submission to a regional competition or a national one, entrants should
consider the following:
Regional content that later receives national distribution may be submitted to either a Regional Awards competition or a relevant National Awards competition, subject to the following restrictions:
An excerpt is defined as a continuous segment or section from longer content.
Unless noted in the category description, no more than three (3) excerpts may be used to bring longer content to the category’s specified entry time limit. For entries representing a program series, content must be included from multiple episodes of the series. A maximum of three (3) representative excerpts is permitted. One to two seconds of black, with no audio or slates, must be added to separate excerpts. If the awards committee determines the content of any excerpt is ineligible, the entire entry will be ruled ineligible. Removal of a commercial break between segments does not constitute a separate excerpt.
The National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences assumes no responsibility for the acts or omissions of those individuals or entities submitting entries pursuant to this notice. All submitting entities and/or individuals are advised to review submissions with respect to correct name credits and other information. NATAS shall accept all submissions that are not in conflict with any of its rules and regulations.
Once a Chapter’s award nominations are announced, there is a 10-calendar day grace period in which names, under extreme, special circumstances, can be added to a nominated entry. These requests should be authorized in writing to the Chapter from the person who submitted the entry or one of the entry nominees requesting this addition and detailing why this request should be granted. At a minimum, the appeal must include why the person was not originally listed on the entry AND what significant contributions that person made. An individual may petition the Chapter directly if the situation warrants. The Chapter’s Awards Committee will make the final decision and ruling.
Once the Emmy® Awards ceremony has concluded, NO individual names can be added to an awarded entry as an additional recipient, under any circumstances.

A category for which there are two (2) areas of excellence being considered in the judging process: Creativity and Execution. These categories focus solely on the craft designated for each (photography, editing, talent, etc.) Our chapter’s craft categories are Categories 25 to 34. (also see: Content Category)
Maximum length allowed for the submitted entry video. This does not necessarily correspond with the original length of the video that was aired/distributed for viewing by the general public. Entry Time Limits vary among categories. Example: The length of a program when it originally aired was 60 minutes. You are entering that program in a category with an Entry Time Limit of 30 minutes. You must follow appropriate guidelines to shorten the entry video to 30 minutes or less.
Systematic, in-depth and original research and reporting of a single topic of interest, such as serious crime, political corruption, or corporate wrongdoing.
The Daytime, Children’s & Family, News & Documentary, Community Service, Sports and Technology & Engineering Emmy® Awards contests are held annually and open to all entrants whose work meets eligibility criteria.
The following are NOT considered to be Producers and are, therefore, not Emmy® statuette eligible. Note: An appropriate plaque or certificate may be purchased to recognize the support or contributions of these individuals.
Entry and payment must be submitted online with the STUDENT EXPRESS system. The entry video is to be uploaded online as well (all directions online). Judging will also be done online. Entry forms can be printed out once you complete the entry process online. The email confirmation you receive should have a link listed for the printing of the entry form. We recommend that you print a copy of the entry form for your own records.
