Honourees will be announced on December 7 to be followed by an invitation-only lunch on January 8, 2016, in recognition of the ten teams behind the best film and television programmes of the year.

The AFI is accepting submissions for 2015 online until 5pm PT on October 22 for television and 5pm PT on October 29 for film.

The annual gathering is the only form of national appreciation that honours the creative ensemble as a whole, behind and in front of the camera.

The 10 teams that created the best television programs and the 10 teams that created the best films will be honored together at a private luncheon in Los Angeles.
