The National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences is soliciting entries for the Emmy Award competition among children's programmers, including a new category this year for programming distributed via the Internet, cellular phones or personal media players.
Qualified programming must have been shown any date this calendar year between the hours of 2 a.m.-6 p.m. There are 12 categories for children's programming, including best series, song, animation and performers.
For the first time, the nominations will be announced during the KidScreen Summit, Feb. 7 at the New York Sheraton Hotel and Towers. The summit will include a session on the Emmy Awards and judging process.
