Judging Requirements

By entering, you agree to serve as a judge when asked, and that judging must occur during the eligibility date of entries – June 1, 2015 to May 31, 2016.

  • If you enter once, you’ll need to judge once
  • If you enter twice, you’ll need to judge twice
  • If you enter three or more times, you’ll need to judge at least 3 times

We will be closely monitoring who enters but does not judge. This continued pattern of entering but not serving as a judge will result in a $25 penalty fee per entrant name. The rules are as follows:

  • Entrants are required to judge as many categories as entered.
  • If you enter the EMMY Awards you are required to judge every 12 months; June 1, 2015 to May 31, 2016.
  • If entrant does not judge within the 12 months, the penalty fee is $25 per entrant name and loss of complimentary nominee ticket.

What is Television

Television is no longer defined by a box that resides in the family living room. Television is happening everywhere we go. The Lone Star EMMY Chapter honors original content created for traditional broadcast/cablecast mediums as well as non-traditional and emerging platforms for broadband and portable delivery. Television is ‘moving pictures on a screen.’  If you are a producer (no matter your craft discipline) of original material intended for a Texas audience, then Lone Star EMMY is your home for television excellence.
