We’ve just launched some changes that will make the online judging process even easier! You will now be able to accept invitations to judge, request panels, and judge entries – all from your Membership account dashboard.

Log in to your EMMY Express account and click on the SEARCH AVAILABLE PANELS icon in the Judging section at the bottom of your dashboard. Look through the list of available panels and “REQUEST TO JUDGE” any you are qualified and willing to judge. You will receive a response within 48 hours*. (*Requests may be declined if a panel has already been filled, 3 people from your company are already on the panel or you don’t meet the peer judging requirements for the category.) 

As always, your participation is greatly appreciated.


Congratulations and welcome to the Board.
