Peer Judging

The success of the Emmy® Award process relies on the willingness of entrants to participate on peer judging panels.  Each year the 19 chapters of NATAS create partnerships to conduct judging for each other.

As a condition of entering the Boston/New England competition, you have agreed to serve as a peer judge on at least one panel in 2018.

Failure to complete judging will result in a loss of your member discount and a fee of $40 will be added on each of your submissions in 2019.

There will be five or six rounds (opportunities) to judge throughout the year. The first round of judging will begin this week.  Depending on the category, the time commitment is typically, 30 minutes to 2 hours.  Everything is online so you can work at your own pace from any computer, making sure you adhere to ballot deadlines.

You will be assigned a panel based on your judging preference and which categories you have entered.  Assignments and instructions will be emailed.  Check your membership record to make sure the correct email is in your record.

After you have completed your ballot, a confirmation will be emailed to you, hang on to it!

Thank you for your participation in this vital step in the Boston/New England Emmy® Award process.
