Those who work in the television and related industries are eligible for professional membership. Dues are annual and our membership year runs March through February. Chapter membership provides automatic membership in the National Academy. Members enjoy reduced entry fees, among other benefits.
Membership is $70 annually. Membership is in the name of the individual, not the corporation. Your membership (and your entries) are connected to your unique email address. Renew and update your membership information as needed. Can’t remember your password? Have it emailed to to you.
Entry fees are determined by membership status.
Annual Membership : $70 per person
Member Entry Fee:
$85 for first entrant name, $65 for each additional member name, per entry
Non-Member Entry Fee:

Note: Membership is in the name of each individual, not the corporation or business. Each name on an entry needs to be a member to get the reduced entry rate.
