2015 Emmy Award and Student Production Award Nominees

Congratulations to all the nominees!  Click here for a PDF: 2015 Nominee List

Thank you to all our Nomination Party partners, Charcoal House, Jackalope Ranch, and Hearthstone Kitchen & Cellar!

Be sure to purchase your tickets for the Emmy Awards Gala on Saturday, June 20th.

Below are our rules for promoting your nomination.

PROMOTION:  All publicity, advertising or any written reference undertaken by nominees and award recipients to the Emmy® Awards, must clearly state that the awarded achievement is for a Regional Emmy® Award. The word “Regional” must appear in these instances. The recipient of a nomination or an Emmy® Award may refer in advertising and publicity to the fact that they have been honored only for one year after the recognition was bestowed. They may use a replica of the Emmy® statuette in such advertising. Individuals who significantly contributed to the production or craft but were not honored with a statuette cannot specifically advertise they are an Emmy® award recipient. They can only state they worked on the recognized program.

STUDENT PRODUCTIONS:  Students are not considered peer professionals and as such, their regional student productions are not eligible for Emmy® award recognition. Student award recipients from any NATAS Chapters’ high school or college competitions may not use the Emmy® name or replica of the Emmy® figure in any form of commercial advertising or promotion for their recognition.

NATAS PSW Scholarship Deadline Extended to March 13, 2015

The deadline for submitting a scholarship application has been extended to March 13, 2015 for the 2016-17 school year.

Student must be a resident of the Pacific Southwest Chapter Area (San Diego, Las Vegas, Bakersfield, San Luis Obispo, Santa Barbara, Santa Maria or Palm Springs) at the time of application. Students should intend to pursue a career in television and related fields. Although we are looking for students who are good scholars, evidence of creative achievement and demonstration of financial need is even more important.

Since the inception of the Scholarship Program, the Chapter has awarded over $281,000 in grants to students preparing for television careers.  Scholarships are granted for use by undergraduate students enrolled in 9 units or more and graduate students enrolled in 6 units or more at two- or four-year colleges or universities for the coming Fall or Spring school year.

Annual scholarship recipients are announced in June, at the Emmy® Awards, for the following school year.   Scholarships are awarded in amounts ranging from $500 to $5,000. Attendance at the Emmy® Awards is not mandatory for receipt of scholarship. Scholarships cannot be applied to coursework already completed.

Online applications can be submitted below:

NATAS Foundation’s College Scholarship Program Expands

THE FOUNDATION OF THE NATIONAL ACADEMY OF TELEVISION ARTS & SCIENCES EXPANDS COLLEGE SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM FOR 2015

NEW YORK, NY – January 26th, 2015 – The Foundation of The National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences and its chapters will award more than $200,000 in scholarships this year to college-bound students aspiring to careers in television.

At the national level, the awards include a new $40,000 Trustees’ Scholarship and two $10,000 scholarships honoring legendary broadcasters Mike Wallace and Jim McKay. The funds are granted to outstanding high- school seniors who intend to pursue a career in any aspect of the television industry.

“There is no better way to honor the Emmy® Award-winning excellence of broadcasting luminaries past than to recognize and foster the excellence of television’s future,” said NATAS Foundation Vice President Adam Sharp, himself a 1996 scholarship winner. “The excellence displayed over the last few years has raised the standards of the scholarship program to incredible new heights.”

This is the third year of the Mike Wallace Memorial Scholarship, funded by a five-year grant from CBS News in honor of longtime correspondent Mike Wallace (1918-2012) and presented each year at the News & Documentary Emmy Awards. The Jim McKay Memorial Scholarship, now in its sixth year, honors sportscaster Jim McKay (1921-2008) and was established in 2009 by the HBO, CBS, NBC, ABC and FOX networks. It is presented at the Sports Emmy Awards each May.

The $40,000 Trustees’ Scholarship was reestablished by the NATAS Board of Trustees to recognize a standout student achievement in the electronic media arts of the last year. The recipient will be selected from the applicants who distinguish themselves in the 2015 McKay/Wallace competition or who were honored with a chapter scholarship in 2014 and nominated for further consideration by their chapter. The 19 regional NATAS chapters award thousands of dollars in scholarships annually.

The online application for the McKay and Wallace scholarships is available at http://emmyonline.org/scholarship, with a deadline for submissions of 5 pm EST on Monday, March 16, 2015. NATAS Trustees and officials will review applications and creative works, and the National Scholarship Committee will make its final selections in April.
