STC Chicago 2016 Technical Communication Competition Now Open

Each year, STC Chicago hosts a technical publications competition that is aligned in format and judging with the STC Summit Awards.  The competition is an invaluable opportunity for technical communicators and their teams to…

  • receive recognition for outstanding work effort
  • receive detailed feedback from multiple peer reviews
  • help provide visibility for our profession
  • help establish professional standards for our work

Everyone is eligible to submit entries to our competition; you do not need to be a member of STC. You can enter work you completed or you can submit an entry on behalf of a colleague or subordinate. The entry must have been produced or substantially revised within the 24 months prior to September 1, 2016 and cannot have been submitted previously to any STC competition.

Submission deadline is October 28, 2016 (to take advantage of the Early Bird fee discount, you must submit your entries by September 28).
