FYC Partner Center: Viewing Platform

FYC Partner Center > Viewing Platform

The Television Academy's FYC viewing platform offers an alternative to mailing DVD screeners – your entries are posted on our password-protected platform for voter viewing, available only to Television Academy members.

This FYC platform features a user-friendly interface which prompts members to view all eligible content prior to voting, choosing the specific category(s) they wish to view. We encourage you to upload your program for each category you've entered in the 71st Emmy competition – it's a "green" and cost-effective means of bringing your fine work to colleagues and peers.

If you are interested in this digital option, please fill out the order form and return to Sheri Ebner ( or fax to 818.754.2836.
