THE YANGAROO DAYTIME ENTRY AND JUDGING SYSTEM:
The online system for entries and judging has launched.Â Click HERE to log in.Â If you are new to Daytime you will need to Sign UP and create a new user profile in this system.Â Returning entrants can log in using previous information or request a new password if necessary.Â Returning judges log in, update the profile to ensure the system contains current information and register anew to obtain a unique 2016-17 Judging ID. Video submissions are uploaded directly to the entry form, the system is used for online viewing/judging and for casting online ballots.Â The online system will prompt for necessary information.
SUBMISSION PLANNING: If you are entering a Series and multiple related categories, you should now be choosing the submission episode (or episodes).Â If you plan to enter additional related performer or host and craft categories, you do NOT have to submit the same episode chosen for the Program category.Â If the submission requirements allow you to submit a whole episode, and you DO wish to use the same one for each category, you only need to upload the video file once, and assign it to each category.Â Certain categories require submitting a clip reel rather than an entire episode.Â Need help in selecting the right performer or craft categories related to your program? Select theÂASSOCIATED CATEGORIESÂspreadsheet on the Dashboard to view or download the grid displaying the correct categories associated with your Program category choice!
EMMY ESSAY:Â Most categories either require or allow an 200-word-or-less essay or technical description. This text will appear on the ballot as an accompaniment to the submitted viewing material and a guide for judges. We advise that you take advantage of this field for each category entered.Â Keep it short, informational and NOT promotional.
VIDEO FORMAT AND HIGH SPEED TRANSER OF MEDIA FILES:Â After logging you select VIDEO UPLOAD SPECS to view or download a document outlining accepted video file formats for submission.Â On the entry form you will also need to download the free ASPERA program to facilitate high speed upload of media files.Â (Many categories require other document uploads such as scripts, lyrics, paper credit crawl etc).Â Don;t hesitate to contact the Yangaroo support team should you need assistance.Â It is important that yur source video is optimal, to ensure the best result after the transcoding process.Â You will be able to review your transcoded submission video before it goes to the judging process.Â Please take the time to view submissions.
ENTRANT TEAMS: Production seasons often span the Daytime EmmyÂ Awards eligibility (calendar) year, and production staff may change during the course of a production year.Â Many categories in Daytime are Team Awards, therefore when submitting your entrant teams, be sure to include all who are eligible.
ENTRANT TEAM INFORMATION: Entries are often prepared and completed by an individual responsible for multiple submissions for a show or network. (The Entrant or “Show Shepherd”).Â “Entrant Team members” are those whose work is being recorded in the system by that person, be it producers for programs, hosts, performers or craft individuals or teams for other categories.Â If you are fulfilling the role of entrant “Shepherd” please be sure to double check name spellings and titles.Â When entering contact information for Entrant Team Members, the system will capture your (Show Shepherd) contact information, however you may type over and replace with personal team member information if desired.Â For categories with large entrant teams, you can download an Excel spreadsheet template to prepare, finalize then drag and drop directly in to the entry form.Â NOTE:Â If you apply your “Shepherd” contact information to all entrant team members, you will be responsible for distributing all Daytime EmmyÂ Award information during the process, such as verification of entry, judging information, notification of nominations, event information or indeed a win!
NEW CATEGORIES, NEW CATEGORY ORDER AND NUMBERS:Â If you are a returning entrant or show âœhepherdâ you will notice new categories, a number reorder and some changes to existing categories.Â As in the past several years, our PDF By-Category Submission Guide document is your friend – indexed and linked internally to assist in locating each categoryâ™ necessary information on a single page and linked to related categories.ÂNATAS Chapter Presidents and Administrators, please make sure to distribute this information to any production companies in your region who produce Nationally distributed programming.
Go to the YANGAROO/ Daytime Online system HERE and look for BECOME AN EMMY JUDGE to register to be a judge. BothÂNew and Returning Judges MUST register in the YANGAROO system (in order to receive a unique 2016-17 judging ID).Â If you are a Show Shepherd, please assist or remind everyone on your show or network to register. You may register for yurself, or register on behalf of other individuals on your program;s team.Â When judging begins, individuals are sent a secure link to the judging site to access their assigned panel(s) and the ballots.
