Events RSVP Lottery
NEW FOR 2019
Last year, Member and For Your Consideration Events frequently "sold out" before all members had an equal opportunity to RSVP. In response to member feedback, we've been testing a new RSVP procedure for select activities – an RSVP lottery – in hopes of providing all interested members a fair chance of attending Television Academy events.
Because this new procedure has proven so successful, we will be utilizing an RSVP lottery for all future Television Academy and For Your Consideration events.
How does the RSVP Lottery work?
For the first 48 hours after an event invitation email goes out, members will have the opportunity to enter the event's RSVP lottery. At the end of the 48 hour period, members will be randomly registered to attend. A registration does not guarantee admittance; all events are first come, first served. Those not selected will be added to a waiting list. All members who entered the lottery will receive an email notifying them of their status.
Note: If an event does not sell out in the first 48 hours, all members entered in the lottery will be registered. Additional RSVPs will then be taken on a first-come, first-served basis.
Members are still required to cancel their registration if they were selected and cannot attend. This allows your fellow "wait listed" members to take your place.
If seats become available for the event, and your waiting list request becomes a registration, you will receive an email confirmation up to 24 hours before the event.
