Judging Process

There are three rounds of judging. The first round takes place in the spring; the semi-final round takes place in the summer - hosted by Member companies; and the finals take place in September. Nominations are announced in October. Four nominees are selected in each category and winners are revealed at the International Emmy Awards Gala, held in November.

*Note that the Digital Program categories will be presented at the International Digital Emmy Awards in partnership with Reed MIDEM at MIPTV in Cannes, France; and are placed on a different timeline than the other categories.
