This award is to honor the overall achievement of the invisible, or near-invisible visual effects within a photoreal (i.e., live action) broadcast program wherein the visual effects, when taken as a whole, are not necessarily essential to the story aspect or an active participant in the story. Supporting visual effects are an incidental and generally invisible part of the visuals and, among other things, may be used to help create the setting, environment, or mood of the program by way of set and or environment extensions / removals / alterations, lighting and lighting effects, or subtle alterations to actors. Additionally they may be the kind of visual effect that is used for safety reasons in a dangerous visual sequence. They do not consist of any significant CG characters, science fiction or fantasy elements, and other highly visible effects that one would expect to see in a visual effects-driven TV program. Supporting visual effects are generally the type of work that, when viewed by the general public, are not recognized by the untrained eye.
