October 1, 2019 – International Support
Judge Academy has set the goal of serving MTG Judge regions EVERYWHERE beginning January 1, 2020.
As a way of showing our commitment to a global Judge program, the account creation process is open to all Judges now! Judges, regardless of country, are welcome and encouraged to create an account and participate in the JudgeAcademy.com site. Features that all Judges, regardless of location, can access, include all Rules Advisor and Level 1 classes and quizzes, forums, the blog, and more.
We are doing a final-level polish on the Event Creator tool. All the functionality is complete, but it requires tweaks to the user interface. We anticipate this Event tool to go live in November, 2019. When the Event Creator tool is finished, Tournament Organizers and Judges around the world will be able to create events, and all Judges will be able to apply for events that they wish to work.
Judges in good standing in areas that are currently supported who complete their account membership by October 31st, 2019 will receive the Quarter 4 Judge foils in a bonus November 15, 2019 mailing. Judges in currently non-supported regions WILL receive the same Quarter 4 foils in addition to their foils for the first half of 2020 with their first mailing of 2020, which will be on February 15, 2020.

Judge Academy will post openings for the Community Consultant positions in currently-unserved regions on our Job board in the coming days. We intend to have these roles filled well before the extended global launch of January 1, 2020.
