Interview: ATAS IMPG Leaders Explain the Changes to the Interactive Media Awards for the 65th Primetime Emmys

Last month (see the article published on, March 28th) the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences Interactive Media Peer Group (IMPG) announced a number of changes to its Interactive Media Awards for the 65th Primetime Emmys. Among other things, it said that it would add a new category award for "Outstanding Interactive Program," and would expand its existing juried award for "Outstanding Creative Achievement in Interactive Media" to include four areas of competition: Multiplatform Storytelling, Original Interactive Program, Social TV Experience, and User Experience and Visual Design.

In this recorded interview with [itvt]'s Tracy Swedlow, Marc Johnson and Geoff Katz, co-chairs of the IMPG's Awards Working Group, and Michael Gregor, advisor to the Awards Working Group, explain the changes and the thinking behind them.

(Note: The deadline for submitting nominations for the Interactive Media Categories in the 65th Primetime Emmy Awards is May 3rd. More information is available here.)
