Valuable and Affordable and for all
The Puget Sound Technical Communication Competition is an excellent way to receive feedback for online help, tutorials, Web sites, reference books, brochures, and posters. Each entry will be evaluated by two judges who will give feedback and based on the Society for Technical Communication’s international standards.
The minimum competition cost is $70 per entry for members.
Entries must contain sufficient technical, scientific, medical, or similar content to qualify as technical communication.
Entries must also have been created or substantially revised within 24 months preceding the competition. This year, the competition has four categories:
- Informational Materials
- Instructional Materials
- Promotional Materials
- User Support Materials.
For more information about entry requirements, see the Competition Rules.
For more information on how to submit an entry for the competition, see How to Enter.

An awards banquet will be hosted on January 15 to celebrate award recipients. Contributors who receive Excellence or Distinguished awards in a local competition may also submit their entries in the 2012 International STC competitions.
