2013 Lone Star Excellence in My Market Awards
The Lone Star Emmy Chapter is proud the offer the Excellence in My Market Awards (EMMA) recognizing television excellence produced in those markets ranging in size from Harlingen/Weslaco/Brownsville/McAllen (#87) to Victoria, Texas (#204).
Without the extensive resources found in Dallas, Houston, San Antonio or Austin, television professionals in these markets find a way to create television excellence every day. Entries in the 2013 Lone Star EMMA will be held to the same Standard of Excellence exemplified by the National Television Academy’s Emmy Awards, yet will be judged ONLY by qualified peer-judges from similar-sized television markets in other NATAS chapters.
And the EMMA Goes to…
Congratulations again to all our 2013 Excellence in My Market Awards (EMMA) winners. We do need to emphasize that EMMA winners are not EMMY Award winners and may not promote themselves as such. The Excellence in My Market Awards are administrated through the Lone Star Chapter of the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences (NATAS) to promote involvement and recognition in our smaller Texas markets. Since NATAS rules do not allow the tiering of categories for the EMMY Awards, the Excellence in My Market Awards allow us to make a special ‘first stop’ for small market TV professionals who wish to have their work considered by academy standards but do not have the financial means to do so. Excellence in My Market Awards winners have their recognized works forwarded to the general call for entries for Lone Star EMMY Award consideration at no additional charge.
EMMA winners may not use the gold EMMY statuette in any promotional materials. EMMA winners receive an engraved crystal pillar with the NATAS logo. The logo may be used for promotional purposes.
