After you’ve decided what to enter,
submitting your entries is easy!

  1. Renew Your Membership / Become a Member / Create a Guest Account
    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 account and 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 Entries
    This is the “paperwork” part of the process – but it’s all online and can be done from any computer with an internet connection. Just log in to your account and complete an entry form for each entry.

  3. Upload and Approve Your Video
    With the new design in Emmy® Express, you can now upload your video while logged in to your account. Just click on the Add Video icon next to the entry title.  And, don’t forgot to approve your video. Entries won’t be available for judging until the videos have been approved by the entrant.

  4. Pay Your Fees
    Each person listed on the entry must pay an entry fee. Whether your company is paying or you’re picking up the tab, make sure all payments are made by April 1, 2022. Fees can be paid through your account. If you have a payment question, need to redeem judging certificates or want several invoices grouped together for payment, contact Executive Director Cherie Housley for assistance.

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!
