Emmy® Express is our online entry solution designed to complete the entire entry process in one location. The entire process takes about 5 – 10 minutes per entry. To submit more than one entry simply repeat the process and at the end be sure to choose your payment option. In addition to completing the entry details, all entries are required to upload the corresponding video to the entry in Emmy® Express for online judging.

If your browser doesn’t support scripting, you are likely to encounter issues while uploading. We strongly suggest you try using another computer or uploading from another location that supports scripting.
You are given three chances to successfully upload your video. If you exceed that number, the system will automatically lock you out. Please contact us to reset your upload attempts and include your Entry ID.
We strongly suggest that you do not upload more than one video at a time. The amount of time it takes to upload a video to Emmy® Express greatly depends on your computer’s internet speed, connectivity, and overall network demand. If multiple people are using the same server to upload videos it will take a longer time to upload and encode. If you are having trouble, try uploading from another location at a different time.
There are several resource links available on the video upload webpage to access your computer and network’s ability to upload a video. If you are still having trouble after reviewing the resources please contact us.
No. Once you click the upload button and the progress bar appears DO NOT leave this page until the encoding process begins. Doing so will affect the upload and most likely, require you to re-upload your video.
Yes. At this point you can leave the webpage. An email will be sent to the submitter as soon as the video has finished encoding. Once the video has finished encoding you will have the option to view the video and approve it. All videos must be approved.
