  • Affiliation with over 1000 television professionals throughout the State of Michigan, who are committed to the highest standards of professional excellence.
  • Access to a National Job Bank, with job postings from all over the country.
  • The opportunity for peer judging – you have the chance to judge entries from 10 of the top Chapters in the county.
  • Discounts tickets to all chapter programs and events.
  • Automatic membership in the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences (NATAS) organization.



By entering, you agree to serve as a judge when asked, and that judging must occur during calendar year of your entry. These are your judging requirements:

  • 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
  • You do not need to be a member to judge
  • If you are a member and you meet your judging requirement, you’ll earn additional entry fee discounts for next year’s competition!

There are typically 3-6 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 March/October, 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.
