NEW YORK - Some of South Africa's top television talent will compete for honours at the International Emmy Awards taking place in New York this evening.

Judges for the awards ceremony are selected from all over the world, including South Africa, to decide the year's best productions.

From South Africa, @thierrycassuto and @karenjeynes nominated for Puppet Nation ZA in the Comedy category #iemmyNOMs

The series Puppet Nation ZA goes up for Best Comedy while the documentary Miners Shot Down (about Marikana) for Best Documentary and MasterChef SA will compete for Best Non-scripted Entertainment Series.

South Africa was also involved in the judging process.

In July, South African judges assessed nominees from the best performance by an actor and TV movie mini-series categories.

I am honoured to be a part of the juror panel for the @iemmys and am grateful to the @FilmFound for this opportunity
