Preparing Your Video



Students are not considered peer professionals and as such, their regional student productions are not eligible for Emmy® award recognition. If material is produced as part of a class, for which school credit is received, they are considered a student. If they are paid or working on a project with other “professionals,” and want to enter the Chapter’s Emmy® Award competition, they cannot enter as a student, but instead must pay the appropriate entries fees as an active NATAS member (or non-member). The student is then prohibited from entering subsequent student production categories with other classmates. 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.

Student award recipients may not use the Emmy® name or replica of the Emmy® figure in any form of commercial advertising or promotion.

Basically, if you go to school in the New England (Maine, Massachusetts, Connecticut, New Hampshire, Rhode Island or Vermont)… you can enter this competition!

These awards recognize outstanding student achievements in production by conferring awards of merit in the chapter’s designated award region.  The presentation of these awards is intended to be an incentive for the continued pursuit of excellence by those studying media and journalism and to focus public attention on outstanding cultural, educational, technological, entertainment, news and informational achievements by undergraduate college and/or high school students.

All video entries uploaded and judged online!
