Restrictions on the Use of the Emmy® Mark
Schools may refer to the fact that they are recipients of a NATAS Northwest Student Production Award, but may not use the Emmy® name or replica of the Emmy® figure in any form of commercial advertising or promotion.
Students are not considered peer professionals and as such, their regional student productions are not eligible for Emmy® award recognition. If material is produced as part of a class, for which school credit is received, or a school sponsored entity or club with non-professional help, the entrant is considered a student as long as they meet all the other previously listed requirements of full-time enrollment.
If they are paid for working on a project with other professionals, and want to enter the Chapter’s Emmy® Award competition, they cannot enter as a student, but instead must pay the appropriate entries fees as an active NATAS member (or non-member).
The student is then prohibited from entering subsequent student production categories with other classmates. Student award recipients from any NATAS Chapters’ high school or college competition may not use the Emmy® name or replica of the Emmy® figure in any form of commercial advertising or promotion for their recognition.
