It’s time to submit your best work from 2018 for consideration in the 55th Annual Ohio Valley Regional EMMY® Awards.

You begin the entry process after you’ve reviewed the Call for Entries and are familiar with the Rules and Categories. IMPORTANT: There have been a number of rules changes. Be sure to read the Call for Entries carefully.

After you’ve decided what to enter, submitting your entries is as easy as 1 – 2 – 3!

  1. Renew Your Membership / Become a Member / Become a Registered User
    Before you can enter your work, EMMY EXPRESS has to know you. Use the links above to become a member, renew your membership or become a registered user. Your unique email address is how the system recognizes and connects you to your entries. TIP: You don’t have to be a member to submit, but as a member you will save money on your entry fees – even if you only submit 1 entry.
  2. Submit Your Entry/Entries
    This is the “paperwork” and payment part of the process – but it’s all online and can be done from any computer with an internet connection. Complete an entry form for each entry. For multiple entries, use “add another entry” option.
  3. Upload and Approve Your Video
    You’ll need your entry number to upload your video. So, no cheating and trying to do step 3 before you finish step 2!  And, don’t forgot to approve your video. Entries won’t be available for judging until the videos have been approved by the entrant.

Again, make sure you review the rules and categories in the Call for Entries before submitting.

Easy! So, what are you waiting for? Submit your entries early and beat the last minute rush!

MONDAY, MARCH 18, 2019 (11:59 P.M.)

Deadline to upload videos: March 25, 2019
Deadline to pay entry fees: April 1, 2019
