STC New York Metro, Philadelphia and Houston Chapters have banded together once more to bring you a noteworthy Regional TechComm Competition. (You do not need to be a member of the STC, NY, Philadelphia or Houston chapters to submit an entry.)
Anyone (student or professional) who produces technical communication, training material, or content for the web and other devices can enter. Society Technical Communication (STC) membership is not a requirement. You may enter work as a team, an individual or on behalf of a colleague.
Enter your best work in the following categories:

Entries are subject to the rules that are defined in the STC General Information and Competition Rules. Entries must:
Contain sufficient technical, scientific, medical, or similar content to qualify as technical communication
Have been produced or substantially revised within the past two years
Have been originally prepared for and accepted for publication by a client, employer, or publisher
STC strongly encourages all entrants to submit the online version of their content or send URLs because:
* Uploading online entries is faster and cheaper for entrants
* There is less risk of damage to entries if sent online
* Distribution of entries to Judges can be done quicker and at lower costs
IMPORTANT CHANGE: Starting 2013, STC is adding a shipping charge for all physical entries (i.e., books, publications, manuals, posters and brochures). Whenever possible, send the URL or the online version of your content. Instructions will be given on sending entries via GoogleDrive or FTP.
For physical entries, add a shipping charge $10.00 / entry
3. You have 2 options:
If you have online entries and can send them via GoogleDrive or FTP, email to Tom Myers who will send instructions back to you. (This includes entries in CDs or DVDs)
If you have physical entries, (hardcopy) pack each entry with the 4 printed entry forms to the following mailing address. For each entry, you should have 4 completed entry forms and 4 copies of your entry, (print copies).
