Primetime Engineering Emmy Awards

The Engineering Emmy Awards are overseen by the Television Academy’s Engineering Committee, and are given to an individual, company or organization for developments in engineering that are either so extensive an improvement on existing methods, or so innovative in nature, that they materially affect the transmission, recording or reception of television.

Loews Hollywood Hotel in Hollywood

The Television Academy's Engineering Awards Committee is chaired by Wendy Aylsworth, Senior Vice President of Technology for Warner Bros, and award recipients are selected by a jury of television engineers. This jury considers all engineering developments which have proven their efficacy during the awards year and determines which, if any, merit recognition with an Engineering Emmy statuette, plaque or certificate. Below is a description of the awards categories.

The Philo T. Farnsworth Award

The Philo T. Farnsworth Award honors an agency, company or institution whose contributions over time have significantly impacted television technology and engineering.

The Charles F. Jenkins Lifetime Achievement Award

The Charles F. Jenkins Lifetime Achievement Award honors a living individual whose on-going contributions have significantly affected the state of television technology and engineering.

Engineering Emmys

Presented to an individual, company or organization for engineering developments so significant an improvement on existing methods or so innovative in nature that they materially affect the transmission, recording or reception of television.

Engineering Plaque

The Engineering Plaque honors achievements that exhibit a high level of engineering and are important to the progress of the industry. The Engineering Plaque is not a consolation prize, but a positive recognition of engineering achievements on a different level of technology and industry importance than the Emmy statuette.

Engineering Certificate

The Engineering Certificate honors those accomplishments which demonstrate a high level of engineering and are important to the progress of the industry.

The 65th Primetime Emmy Engineering Awards were presented at a gala ceremony on October 23, 2013 at the Loews Hollywood Hotel. Sarah Shahi from CBS' Person of Interest hosted the event.
