All entries in all categories are judged by at least 7 peers in a National Academy of TelevisionArts & Sciences region outside of the Heartland chapter. Peers are defined as people who have three or more years experience working in the category they are judging. Judges acknowledge their experience via affidavits submitted to NATAS. Entries are judged on their own individual merits; they are not judged in competition with each other.

We are one of 19 regional chapters across the US, covering Colorado, Oklahoma, Kansas, Nebraska and Wyoming.
