Silver and Gold Circle Nominations
Do you know someone in the business who’s made a substantial contribution for 25 – or even 50 – years? Nominations come from you! Please contact the office for details, and let’s give these outstanding individuals the recognition they deserve!
Memorialize your contribution to an Emmy-winning production with a stunning wall plaque. There is no statute of limitations for ordering these, even for past years’ winning productions. All plaques are a beautiful rosewood with a polished piano-key finish and engraved brass plate; all feature a replica statue (5″ or 9″ – price varies). Contact the office for more information.
2016 Judging Policy
The success of the Emmy® Awards process depends on the willingness of qualified professionals to serve as judges.
By entering, you agree to serve as a judge when asked, and that judging must occur during calendar year 2016 – the year of your entry.
- If you enter once, you’ll need to judge once
- If you enter twice, you’ll need to judge twice
- If you enter three or more times, you’ll need to judge at least 3 times
If you don’t meet your judging requirement, your entry fees will double the next time you enter the competition.
There are typically 6-7 opportunities to judge other chapters’ entries during the year (we call them Rounds) and all entrants are notified via email. You can expect to see these judging notices regularly through July/August, after which the judging is on an unscheduled basis – if at all.
What’s the time commitment for judging? 30 minutes to 2 hours, depending on the category; judging can be done anywhere you have a computer; it’s all online.
When you judge 3 or more times during a calendar year, you’ll earn a $10 discount on membership dues for the coming year. There is no limit to the amount of judging you can do, as long as you’re qualified to judge the categories you choose.
We polled several of our long-time judges, to ask them Why Judge? Here’s what they said:
- “I like to compare my work with other markets around the country”
- “It expands the judging pool, which is how I want my work judged”
- “I get a ton of ideas from watching other people’s work”
- “Doing it online is super-easy for my schedule; I don’t have to do it all at once”
