41st Annual Daytime Emmys Call for Entries and Judges

The National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences has launched a new, all-online judging system for the Daytime Emmy Awards.

The National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences, which administers the Daytime Emmy Awards, has launched a new, all-online awards system. Entrants upload video to the system and judges register, view submissions and cast ballots online. For judging ease, the system will even be available for viewing on an iPad!

In addition to the many genres and categories associated with Daytime — dramas, talk shows, games shows, lifestyle programming and children’s and animated programs — the Daytime Emmys have introduced three new Spanish-language categories this year: Outstanding Morning Program in Spanish, Outstanding Entertainment Program in Spanish and Outstanding Daytime Talent in Spanish. This allows members who are fluent in Spanish to view and evaluate submissions as they were broadcast. If you wish to judge these categories, please be sure to select the Spanish Language option on the judge registration form.

All Peer Groups are welcome. If you would like to participate, you can go directly to to register to be a judge. If you have participated in the past, we ask you to register anew, since all information from previous years will not carry over to this new system.

The Daytime Emmys sincerely appreciates the time and effort required of those serve as judges, and trusts that the convenience of an online system will encourage you to view and evaluate the work of your peers.
