The Great American Wheat Harvest is Nominated for a Regional EMMY® Award
We’re excited to announce that the Great American Wheat Harvest film has been nominated for an EMMY® Award! On Thursday, August 7, the Mid-America Chapter of National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences revealed the nominees for the 2015 Regional EMMY® Awards, and the Great American Wheat Harvest was nominated in the documentary-cultural category.
The film aired on WQPT (Quad Citiies PBS) this past February, and consequently qualified to be submitted for the nomination. As one of nineteen regional chapters of the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences, the Mid-America Chapter is the standard-bearer for excellence in the television broadcasting industry and the gatekeepers of the prestigious regional EMMY® Awards. Mid-America represents the most experienced and talented television professionals from all disciplines of the industry in the region.
It’s really an honor be considered for an EMMY® Award; it’s the culmination of a lot of hard work and persistence in getting our film to an audience who needs to see it. This nomination is also a tribute to the farmers and harvesters who work hard, year in and year out, to bring food to our tables.
The 39th Mid-America EMMY® Gala will be held on Saturday, October 3, 2015 at the Marriott St. Louis Grand Hotel in St. Louis, Missouri. We hope to come home with the golden statue.
We’re looking for more opportunities to air the film.
