The Gold Circle (50+ years) and The Silver Circle (25+ years) are open to all who have extensive careers in television, either in a performing, creative, technical or administrative role within the industry or in a peripheral area directly related to television, such as commercial production, journalism, or education.
Nominations must be received by June 21st, 2024.
Nominees must have made a significant contribution to our industry, NATAS and the community in the Upper Midwest for at least part of their career. Equal consideration will be given to candidates who are living or deceased.
Candidates or their sponsors are asked to submit the following information for evaluation by the Upper Midwest Emmy® Chapter Board of Governors.
As we are limited to three inductees each year, all nominees not honored will be held for consideration for future presentations. For more information, contact John Murray, Executive Director via telephone 952-381-7494 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Upon vote by the Board of Governors, Commemorative Emmy® Circle plaques will be presented to recipients at the Upper Midwest Regional Emmy® Gala on Saturday October 12th, 2024 at the Mystic Lake Event Center in Prior Lake, MN.
Do you know someone who has made a significant contribution to our media industry in their career? The National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences – Upper Midwest Chapter honors people and stations that have made a difference in their industry, craft or community. Please check out our Gold & Silver Awards.
The Gold or Silver Circle is not an award; it’s a society of honor.
Recognition of eligible individuals who have made a significant contribution to television well above and beyond that required by their job. That contribution can be in service to the industry, to NATAS, to the community, or to people training for a career in the field.
Nominees answer to the highest standards of integrity and honor in all aspects of their personal and professional lives. Nominations are accepted from the performing, creative, technical or administrative roles within the industry or in peripheral areas directly related to television such as commercial production, journalism or education. Neither nominators nor nominees need to be members of NATAS
An individual’s entire career need not have been spent in a single market; but must have significant contributions within the Chapter’s region.
Like the Silver Circle, it is a regional chapter option. The National Awards Committee may also award individuals whose work is national or which has been spread over a number of markets and has not been recognized by a local chapter.
Requires fifty years service in television, not necessarily in a single market.
