WELCOME TO THE CAPITAL EMMYS
We are The National Capital Chesapeake Bay Chapter of The National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences.
Yes, that’s a mouthful, which is why we’ve shortened it to Capital Emmys!
We represent excellence in television across all media by recognizing the very best in our profession.
Our tool of choice is one of the highest honors in the television industry: The Emmy® Award!
THE NATIONAL ACADEMY
NATAS oversees national Emmy® Awards in Daytime programming, Children’s television, Sports, News, Documentary, and Technical achievement.
Our National Academy and Chapter serve as educational and professional resources to our members and to our profession.
Capital Emmys or the NATAS-NCCB Chapter, oversees The Emmy® Awards regionally.
This includes all media outlets in Washington, DC, Maryland and Virginia.
We are one of the largest NATAS Chapters in The National Academy with over 1,500 members.
THE NATIONAL ACADEMY OF TELEVISION ARTS & SCIENCES
The Emmy® Award is the premier television production award presented in various sectors of the television industry, including entertainment programming, news and documentary shows, and sports programming.
The awards are presented in various area-specific ceremonies held annually throughout the year, honoring excellence in television programming.
Being a member of the organization that represents excellence in television arts says something about you and your place in our profession. That’s what Capital Emmys and The National Academy offer. If you work in the media in Washington, DC, Maryland or Virginia, you’re eligible to join our Chapter. By doing so, you automatically became a member of The National Academy.
