Submission/Voting Process:


  1. Submission form opens for Networks, Production Companies, Cast, Crew and Representatives to submit their shows, talent, departments for all categories.

  2. In order to get as many shows involved as possible, the RTVAs team is consistently researching new shows and encouraging submissions from production companies, talent, and networks. Our goal is to generate as many submissions as possible so we, as the awards, have the ability to show off every aspect of what makes up our diverse and inclusive industry.

  3. Once submissions have been received, the Industry Vote commences.

  4. Information regarding the industry vote is sent out to all who submitted, Reality TV Academy Members and posted in online forums. Anyone who is approved as an active member of the Reality TV Industry ( will receive a personalized “Industry Only” ballot.

  5. After the results are in from the“Industry Only” ballot, the final nominees make up the “Public Vote”. 

  6. The Reality TV Awards does our best to encourage voting by sending out shareable social media graphics, generating as much press as possible and communicating with the show representatives to make sure they have as much information as possible. 

  7. Once the public vote is complete, the winner of each category is announced at the Reality TV Awards.
