All entries in all categories are judged by at least 7 peers in a National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences region outside of the Heartland chapter. Peers are defined as people who have three or more years of experience working in the category they are judging. Judges acknowledge their experience via affidavits submitted to NATAS. Entries are judged on their own individual merits; they are not judged in competition with each other.
The Heartland Chapter of the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences is a membership-based organization dedicated to advancing and awarding excellence in all areas of media and television, through our Emmy® Awards competition, scholarships, and programs. We are one of 19 regional chapters across the US, covering Colorado, Oklahoma, Kansas, Nebraska and Wyoming.
