The success of the Emmy® Awards process depends on the willingness of qualified professionals to serve as judges. Peers in other NATAS Chapters are serving as this Chapter’s entrants. This Chapter will judge other Chapter’s entries. By entering, you agree to serve as a judge when asked.

Mandated Judging

We judge for at least 10 other Regional EMMY Chapters per year and give each of our members the opportunity to judge each time. We send out the Judging Calls to ALL members, via email…you respond to the email with your judging choices and we send you full judging instructions. All judging is easy and online!

We will be closely monitoring who enters but does not judge. A continued pattern of entering but not serving as a judge will result in the loss of member benefits; including discounted entries fees. The rules are as follows:

  • Entrants are required to judge as many categories as entered (up to 3x).
  • If you enter the EMMY Awards you are required to judge every 12 months;  November 1, 2017 to October 31, 2018.
  • If entrant does not judge within the 12 months, the penalty fee is $35 per entrant name.
