The Basics:

The Rocky Mountain Southwest Chapter of the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences is proud to announce the call for nominations for those eligible for induction into the nationally recognized Gold or Silver Circles. The nominees will be vetted and finally selected by a committee comprised of past inductees into the honorary circle as well as elected members of the chapter’s Board of Governors.

The criteria for selection includes at least 25 years working in the television industry with most of that time spent in the Rocky Mountain region for the Silver Circle, and at least 50 years for consideration for the Gold Circle. Equally important in consideration, is the nominee's contribution to the profession and to the community. Those candidates who have gone a step beyond their required work performance in the areas of management, talent, journalism, production, programming, promotion, engineering, and education – areas especially related to the development and distribution of content of television for the benefit of the community will be considered.

An outstanding individual may be nominated for consideration by completing this form and submitting supporting information that best describes the career of the individual. This may take the form of a resume of past positions in broadcasting, along with listings of past community activities, awards won and positive effects on the lives of colleagues and future broadcasters.

The committee can best evaluate the accomplishments of each nominee by having complete documentation describing the work and contributions of the nominee. Those documents might include up-to-date resumes, letters of recommendation, notices of awards, examples of publications/productions, and letters of commendation. In addition, the person providing the nomination should provide a letter of support that details the outstanding works of the nominee and why they should be selected for this honor.

Nominations are not carried over from year to year. Nominators: the selection committee relies heavily on what you write about the candidates. Please be thorough and specific with your comments.

The person nominating an individual for this honor will be notified as to the status of the nomination in March. Those selected for the 2020 Gold or Silver Circle will be inducted at the Emmy® Awards event and are expected to accept the honor in person. Each inductee will receive two complimentary tickets to the gala. Nominators are expected to provide a two-minute video describing their contribution to the television profession.
