Board of Governors' Award / Citation Nomination Form

DEADLINE June 28, 2024 (5pm PT)
Board of Governors’ Award:

The Rocky Mountain Southwest Chapter of the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences Governors' Award is the highest award our chapter bestows upon an individual, group or organization within our region (Arizona, Utah, New Mexico or El Centro, CA). Historically, the Board of Governors' Award is for truly outstanding and unique achievements in the arts, sciences or management of television which is either of a cumulative nature or extraordinary and universal in nature as to be beyond the realm of the awards presented in the call for entries. The Board of Governors calls for nominations each year. A panel convenes and should it believe that one or more of the nominees meet the stringent criteria, a decision is made. The award, in the form of a regional Emmy® statuette, is presented at the Rocky Mountain Emmy® Awards.

Past recipients have ranged from technical innovations to public service programs to remarkable individuals. We seek examples of excellence in broadcasting that go beyond those normally found in individual craft or program categories. For the list of past honorees please click here.
We will also consider awarding the Board of Governors’ Citation:

Recipients of this award fulfill the same requirements as the Board of Governors’ Award, but are recognized for accomplishments of a lesser degree. The award is given in recognition of outstanding and unique achievements or accomplishments by individuals, organizations, or companies (regional) that do not fall within the structure of the Chapter’s regular area awards. The honored recipient can be recognized for work done in the arts, sciences, or management of television or allied media. Contributions to the industry in the Chapter’s region should be an important consideration when determining Board of Governors’ Award recognition. Those who appear as an interview subject or expert in a given field do not qualify. A curved glass award would be presented.
