2018 Lone Star Regional Sports EMMY® Awards

Over the years, Lone Star EMMY® Call for Entries Competition has grown exponentially, especially in the Sports Category Entries.  The Lone Star Board of Governors submitted a Regional Sports EMMY® Call for Entry proposal to the National Awards Committee last year. We are excited the new competition was approved for a two year beta test!

The Lone Star Regional Sports EMMY® Awards will present only SPORTS CATEGORIES!  This would be a new independent competition, with new eligibility dates and entry times.  Sports Categories will no longer be included in the Lone Star EMMY® Awards. The Inaugural Lone Star Regional Sports EMMY® Awards Show will be on August 20, 2018 at AT&T Stadium in Arlington.

IMPORTANT NOTE:  If you entered the 2017 Call for Entries that included the air dates of March 1, 2017 – May 31, 2017, your submissions would not be eligible for the 2018 Lone Star Regional Sports EMMY® Call for Entries. 

This will be the only year that we will limit the eligibility period, to get caught up with the normal schedule.

Next year the Membership Calendar will be the same as the eligibility dates; March 1, 2018 through February 28, 2019.
