WHAT IS AN ENVIRONMENTAL MEDIA AWARD?
First presented by the Environmental Media Association (EMA) in 1991, the Environmental Media Awards honor film and television productions that increase public awareness of environmental issues and inspire personal action on these issues. The Awards recognize writers, producers, directors, actors, and others in the entertainment industry, actively expressing their concern for the environment through their work. The Environmental Media Awards also honor people in the entertainment industry who have gone above and beyond their peers in consistently including story lines, environmental practices or role modeling in their work and/or daily lives.
To be eligible, all films must have been released theatrically or first screened at an accredited U.S. film festival between July 2016 and July 2017. Documentaries must have sold distribution rights and have been aired either theatrically, on network, cable, pay or streaming channel. Television productions must have first aired between July 2016 and July 2017 on national network, cable, public television, first-run syndication, or streaming channel. EMA reserves the right to review all entries for eligibility.
WHAT MAKES A ENTRY ENVIRONMENTAL?
Winners will be selected by a board of judges comprised of leaders from both the entertainment and environmental communities. Sometimes it can be as simple as a single beat in a half-hour television comedy or as elaborate as the story line for an entire feature film. As long as the work clearly delivers an environmental message and delivers it in an entertaining way, EMA urges you to submit it for consideration.
