March Judging Opportunities

Call for Judges

Judges Needed for Online Categories and Super Panel

We have an online Emmy® judging opportunity and a Super Panel this month to judge the Lower Great Lakes and DC Chapters, in English categories.  When you submit your Emmy® Entry, you are agreeing to judge other chapters’ entries.  Without this reciprocity, there would be no Emmy® Awards.  Judges will receive one judging reward per panel judged.  Judging rewards are valued at $5- each, and can be used towards membership renewal, Emmy® Entry submissions, and Emmy® Event Tickets.

SUPERPANEL:

This is an in-person, all-day judging session from 8:30 am to 4 pm on Saturday, March 12th in San Diego.  Up to 8 English language news panels will be judged. Breakfast and lunch will be provided, and Super Judging Rewards will be given to participants. For National Capital Chesapeake Bay (DC), qualified judges need a minimum of 5 years of professional television experience in the category being judged.  Appropriate job titles include producers, directors, writers, editors, photographers and reporters whose experience qualifies them to evaluate the work of their peers. Judges need not be NATAS members. Map and directions will be sent to confirmed judges prior to the panel.  To sign up for the Superpanel or for judging DC online, email admin@nataspsw.org with category you are qualified and willing to judge. The deadline to complete judging NCCB (DC) online judging is Sunday, April 10, 2016.
