Philo T. Farnsworth Corporate Achievement Award

The Philo T. Farnsworth Corporate Achievement Award is a Primetime Emmy engineering award given to honor companies who have significantly affected the state of television and broadcast engineering over a long period of time. The award is given by the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences (ATAS) at the Engineering Awards ceremony held a few weeks before the main Primetime Emmy award ceremony. The award originated in 2003 as a means to recognize Panavision's years of contribution to the film and television industries. Unlike most other Emmy awards, it is not awarded every year.

The award is named after the inventor of electronic television, Philo Farnsworth.

Even though the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences (NATAS) has a separate Technology & Engineering Emmy Award category, the Philo T. Farnsworth award is listed as a part of the Los Angeles based ATAS Primetime Emmy award repertoire.
