ATAS Launches New 'FYC' Website

The Academy for Television Arts & Sciences has launched a newly redesigned "For Your Consideration" website for its members.

Developed and run by the Academy with one of their development partners, TrueLogic Software, the new site provides members with an affordable and efficient, privacy-protected means of screening submission materials for the 64th Primetime Emmy Awards, which will air on ABC Sept. 23.

Every Friday through June 22, Academy members will receive an email update listing all program submissions that have been posted to the site that week. A complete ballot will be posted on its member website June 11.

Nominations will be announced Thursday, July 19 at 5:35 a.m. (PT).

The new screening site provides studios, networks and individuals the opportunity to showcase their work without having to manufacture and mail DVD copies, keeping with the Academy's efforts to be more "green."
