Judges needed for the Chicago/Midwest Emmy Awards

The Chicago/Midwest Emmy Awards will be opening their 2021 contest for entries in late April. Judging is a great way to figure out what work you may want to submit. It’s also a great way to get story ideas and creatively think about your craft.

All judging is done online and completed by only those who have experience of at least 2 years in their respective categories.

Membership is not required to judge. 

See the categories below! You may request judging assignments on your Emmy Express membership dashboard or by contacting Diana Borri at dborri@emmyonline.tv.
