The Puget Sound Chapter Competition

STC sponsors yearly competitions for technical communicators to receive recognition for their work. We thank everyone who participates in the competitions, both as submitters and judges.

For a list of the award-winning entries from previous years, see Past Competition Winners.

2015-2016 Competition

The STC Puget Sound Chapter invites you to participate in the competition for 2015-2016. The competition is open to all technical communication professionals. You do not have to be a member of STC to participate.

The competition is an excellent way to receive feedback for online Help, tutorials, websites, reference books, brochures, posters, phone apps, and other media. Each entry is evaluated by at least two judges. They give feedback based on the international standards for the Society for Technical Communication.

The competition will be open for entries in the fall of 2015. 

Entry Requirements

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.
