The awards will be presented on September 21st, 2016 at a ceremony in the Time Warner Complex at Columbus Circle in New York City, an event which more than 1,000 television and news media industry representatives are expected to attend.
Awards will be handed out in 46 categories, with TMFS productions listed in two. The yearly awards honour programming distributed during the previous calendar year.

In the category of Outstanding Nature Programming, the three-part programme ‘Animal Homes – Natural Born Engineers’, a production about the ingenious and creative home- and nest-building techniques of animals around the globe, has been nominated.
Furthermore, a nomination in the same category has gone out to ‘Mystery Monkeys of Shangri-La’, a documentary about the mysterious Yunnan snub-nosed monkeys, living in a hidden valley of the Himalayas.
And a third of the five nominees within the Outstanding Nature Programming category has been produced by TMFS as well: ‘Soul of the Elephant’, written and directed by outstanding nature filmmakers Dereck and Beverly Joubert, follows in the footsteps of Africa’s iconic creatures: elephants.
