Categories honoring Documentaries will be presented the following evening, September 29th. Both ceremonies are live-streamed on our dedicated platform powered by Vimeo.
We honor programming content from more than 2200 submissions that originally premiered in calendar-year 2020, judged by a pool of over 900 peer professionals from across the television and streaming/digital media News & Documentary industry.
The ceremony features the presentation of the Mike Wallace Memorial Scholarship. The Mike Wallace Memorial Scholarship is funded by a grant from CBS News in honor of longtime correspondent Mike Wallace (1918-2012) and presented each year at the News & Documentary Emmy® Awards.
