The Philo T. Farnsworth Award is one of the Primetime Engineering Emmy Awards given to honor companies and organizations that 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 an Engineering Awards ceremony held separately from the main Primetime Emmy award ceremony. The award originated in 2003 with the recognition of Panavision for its contributions to the film and television industries. It has not been awarded in every year since its inception.

The award is named after Philo T. Farnsworth, a pioneer of electronic television technology.

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 part of the Los Angeles based ATAS Primetime Emmy award repertoire.
