Semi-Final Judging Events


Every summer, from June to September, the Academy travels to over 25 judging sites for Semi-Final Judging events. These events are hosted by Academy Members and determine the International Emmy® Award Nominees for the year. Semi-Final rounds are not only a crucial step in the judging process, but also a great networking opportunity for the Host and the Jurors invited to participate in the competition. Depending on the Host, events range from small, one day events to large gatherings over two days with press conferences, cocktails and cultural visits added on to the judging panels.
