The success of the Emmy® Awards process depends on the willingness of qualified professionals like you to serve as judges. Your peers in other NATAS Chapters will judge our Chapter’s entries and in return, our Chapter must judge theirs. By submitting your entry, you agree to serve as a judge when asked. (now we are asking!)

We rely on your participation in order for this process to be successful. If you are available to judge, please contact Karla MacDonald at Thank you in advance!
