Each year hundreds of graduate and undergraduate students, representing colleges and universities nationwide, submit their media projects to television’s most prestigious student competition — the Television Academy Foundation’s College Television Awards.

The submissions period for the 39th College Television Awards begins on Sept. 6 and runs through Oct 19, 2018.

Designed to emulate the Emmy® nomination process, the student entries, in a variety of categories, are judged by active Television Academy members. Top honors and awards are presented to students by TV’s biggest stars at the annual ceremony held at the Academy’s Saban Media Center in North Hollywood, CA.

In 2018 three nominees will be chosen in each of eight categories: drama, comedy, animation, nonfiction, promotional, news, sports and variety.
