Enter the Regional Technical Communication Competition

Regional TechComm Competition

Did you or your company produce great instruction, information, user support or promotional content in the past year or two? If you did, this opportunity is for you! The STC New York, Philadelphia, Atlanta, Houston, and Rochester chapters are collaborating once again in search of the most compelling technical communication achievements for 2017–2018.

Visit the competition web page for details and to enter. The deadline for entries is November 15, 2017.

There are several benefits of entering:

  • Receive recognition for your best technical communication
  • Earn visibility and validate your methods with the most esteemed award for technical communicators
  • Receive independent and professional feedback about your work and content from at least three judges

You can also participate by volunteering as a judge.

The Rochester Chapter benefits from participation by members. The chapter receives credit for each entry and volunteer (judges and competition leaders) in the calculation of our share of the proceeds.

This year there is no international competition, so the regional competition is your opportunity to receive recognition and valuable feedback.

The competition follows this calendar:

  • Deadline for entries: November 15, 2017
  • Deadline for Judge applications: October 30, 2017
  • Training for Judges and Team Leaders: Week of November 26
  • Judging Phase: December 3, 2017 to January 19, 2018
  • Consensus Judging Day: January 20, 2018
  • February 2018: Awards announced
  • March to May 2018: Joint STC TechComm Roadshow; Awardees featured on STC website and in STC publications
