About the College Television Awards
For forty three years, The College Television Awards have recognized excellence in student production. The first College Television Awards ceremony was held at the Directors Guild on October 25, 1979, where six awards were provided in two categories — the Eric Sevareid Information Program and Rod Serling Entertainment Program.
Administered by the Television Academy Foundation, the program has since grown to a nationwide competition that recognizes students working across program genres in multiple categories. Now, the College Television Awards include donor-supported categories such as the Seymour Bricker Humanitarian Award and the Loreen Arbus Focus on Disability Award. These awards continue to spotlight talented storytellers interested in specialized fields in entertainment.
In addition to showcasing student production, the College Television Awards are an entry point for a career in television and media. Prior College Television Award winners now work across the industry as writers, executives, showrunners and more, at networks and studios across the industry, such as Netflix, Max, ESPN, CNN, NBCUniversal, Disney/ABC, Paramount, among others. There are over 900 College Television Award alumni, all of whom have access to networking opportunities and events through the Foundation’s alumni community.
College Television Awards nominees and winners will become part of the Television Academy Foundation's Alumni family and have the opportunity to participate in year-round networking opportunities and events with industry leaders.
The Television Academy Foundation is proud to have jump-started and supported the careers of leading executives, directors, producers, and Emmy winners over the course of the last forty years. Click here to see where some of our successful College Television Awards alumni have gone!
