NAME/STATION/CITY/TITLE:
Laura Repreza, KTLM, Rio Grande Valley, McAllen, Marketing & Promotions Director

HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN IN THE INDUSTRY?
I started my career in the Television Industry 20 years ago.

Empecé mi carrera en la Industria de la Televisión hace 20 años.

WHAT MAKES YOU WANT TO VOLUNTEER TO JUDGE?
When you judge, you not only get to see magnificent quality of work, but you get to see the passion of journalists, producers, directors and editors and the personality of a news room, the creativity of an advertising campaign or the commitment of an entire TV station, but all of them perusing excellence.

Cuando eres juez, no sólo tienes la oportunidad de ver magnífica calidad, pero también puedes ver la pasión de periodistas, productores, directores y editores, la personalidad de un departamento de Noticias, la creatividad de una campaña publicitaria o el compromiso de toda una estación de Televisión, pero todos ellos persiguiendo la excelencia.

WHAT DO YOU LOOK FOR WHEN JUDGING?

Whatever the category is, the message you receive from each piece has to be unique.

Cualquiera que sea la categoría, el mensaje que recibes de cada video tiene que ser único.

ARE THERE SOME CATEGORIES YOU PREFER MORE THAN OTHERS?
Even when right now my position involves more promos, psa’s and community campaigns…. I can’t help myself, News categories are in my blood!

Aún y cuando ahora mi puesto de trabajo involucra más promocionales, anuncios de servicio público y campañas publicitarias…. No lo puedo evitar, las categorías de Noticias las llevo en la sangre.
 
HAVE YOU FOUND JUDGING HELPS WHEN IT’S TIME FOR YOUR OWN ENTRIES?
Definitely! Getting the opportunity to learn from others is a privilege.

Definitivamente! Tener la oportunidad de aprender de otros, es un privilegio.

WHAT WOULD YOU SAY TO ENCOURAGE OTHERS TO JUDGE?
I will suggest for every Lone Star Emmy member to judge. Learn from others, get to see their creativity and/or ability to cover or tell a story, only gives you a different perspective on how to perform your own work.

Le sugeriría a cualquier miembro del Lone Star Emmy que sea juez. Aprender de los demás, ver su creatividad y/o habilidad para cubrir o contar una historia, solo te da una perspectiva diferente sobre cómo desempeñar tu propio trabajo.
