The hallmark of the regional EMMY Awards is the peer judging process. In the coming weeks hundreds of judges from other chapters will be serving as judges for your entries. Please take time to serve as a judge. Online judging can be conducted any time - day or night - all you need is a computer and an internet connection. We are wrapping up judging for the Heartland chapter and we have the Mid-Atlantic chapter on deck, followed by Rocky Mountain Southwest and Chicago/Midwest.
As we phase out DVD entries we do have URGENT judging to complete for the Heartland Chapter that are on DVD format: Newscast, Community Service and Documentary.
Please contact Misti Torres McCarty immediately if you can complete the DVD judging. Each category or panel must have a minimum of five (5) judges in order to be considered complete. Judges need not be NATAS members.
