The judging period is February 1st through January 31st. There are 7-10 opportunities to judge very year. Judge at least three panels during the judging period to receive an automatic $20 discount on your 2024 EMMY® entries.
All EMMY® entrants are required to judge when called upon. Here are few tips before signing up:
TIP #1: Be sure to update your judging profile with your qualifications or your judging requests may be denied.
TIP #2: Do not request more panels than you can handle. Typically, no more than 3-4 panel requests will be approved per person at a time. Once complete you may request more panels.
TIP #3: Only request panels that you are qualified to judge. For example, do not request a news panel if you do not have experience in news.
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 this Chapter's entrants. This Chapter will judge other Chapter's entries. By entering, you agree to serve as a judge when asked.
