Submissions for consideration in
The 75th Technology & Engineering Emmy® Awards
All Submissions due by Monday March 10, 2023
An award to a living individual, a company, or a scientific or technical organization for developments and/or standardization involved in engineering technologies that either represent so extensive an improvement on existing methods or are so innovative in nature that they materially have affected television.
A Panel of highly qualified engineers working in television considers technical development, and determines which, if any, merit an award.
A) All award balloting is by secret ballot.
B) An affirmative vote by two-thirds of the voting members present is required for an award.
C) Technology nominations must be approved by half of the voting members present at the second meeting to be considered for further investigation as to award worthiness at the third and any subsequent meetings.
D) An affirmative vote by two-thirds of the voting members present is required to deny further consideration for an award once that technology or individual nomination has been approved for investigation at the second meeting.
E) If the Committee approves one or more awards, they will be for Academy Emmy® Statuettes. There will be no “Citation” award given.
F) To be eligible to vote on the final award ballots the representative of a company or organization must have been present at all previous meetings (except for the first, organizational meeting). A designated qualified alternate may be assigned if prior notice is given.
G) Companies having common ownership (a parent-subsidiary relationship for example) shall be considered for voting purposes as a single organization. Each company may have a representative at committee meetings, but one representative will be designated to cast the single vote of the larger organization.
H) Any member(s) whose company is under consideration for an award will be excluded from balloting for award recognition for that particular technology. This exclusion would be only for the ballot(s) pertaining to that technology.
I) All technology nominations must be limited to technologies. Any individual, or organization or product could not be discussed until the third meeting as part of a discussion to an already approved technology.
J) The Committee may establish other procedures as necessary to conduct its meetings and other business. Points not covered by Committee procedures will be governed by Robert’s Rules of Order, Revised Edition.
K) Technology and Engineering committee members are expected to act as sub-chairs of the technology investigation subcommittees at least 2 out of 3 years to maintain their membership on the committee.
