The PGA has named its chairs and also the schedule for the 28th annual PGA Awards, which are now set for January 28, 2017 at the Beverly Hilton. Producers Amy Pascal and Donald De Line will be this year’s awards chairs.

This year, the guild is effecting a transition in its award eligibility period for TV productions, moving towards a calendar year. To accommodate that, the eligibility period for most TV series production has been extended — with the exception of long-form series/specials and sports programming, which already run on a calendar year. Now the period runs June 1, 2015-December 31, 2016. Accordingly, the submission deadline for these categories has moved from the spring to the fall and is now September 30.

Starting with the 2018 Awards, the regular 12-month period for TV award eligibility will resume, covering programs premiering January 1, 2017- December 31, 2017.

The PGA said its awards website is now active and accepting submissions for eligibility in all categories.

Here is the PGA’s timeline:
