ATAS seeks interactive media entries

Submission deadline is April 30

The Academy of Television Arts and Sciences Interactive Media Peer Group is seeking submissions for its fiction and nonfiction Emmy award categories.

The prizes will go to outstanding fiction and non-fiction-based interactive programs or series that present opportunities for audience engagement beyond passive, linear television viewing. Ideally, entries will involve programming that provides access to additional information, extends plots or characters into interactive, cross-media environments, or contains elements facilitating individual or community participation.

The Interactive Media Peer Group at large will select the 2010 Primetime Emmy Award nominees from all eligible entries.

The deadline for entries is April 30. Additional entry and eligibility information can be found at
