STUDENT PRODUCTION AWARDS

The Capital Emmy Chapter of Nation Academy of Television Arts & Sciences (NATAS) holds

an open Call for Entries for Student Production Awards every year.

Our purpose is to recognize outstanding student achievement in production by conferring awards of merit in the Chapter’s designated awards region. The presentation of these awards is intended to be an incentive for the continued pursuit of excellence by those studying media and journalism and to focus public attention on outstanding cultural, educational, technological, entertainment, news and informational achievements by undergraduate college and/or high school students.

Congratulations to the 2020-2021 Student Production Award recipients!

They were announced on September 22nd by Adam Longo of WUSA9 during a Facebook live special event.
