We are looking for people to represent our Philadelphia region in our joint regional tech comm competition!
Judges are asked to dedicate about 15-24 hours over a five month period, and are trained on how to evaluate the competition submissions. It’s a great opportunity to see how other people put tech comm into action!
If you’ve been a judge before–the timeline is different this year!
In responses to past judges who said that the judging process was too fast, the timeline has been spread out a little more this year.
If you would like to volunteer to be a competition judge, complete the electronic Judges Information Form (click the link, complete and Submit) by Monday, November 5, 2018. If you judged last year and filled out this form, just send us any updates/changes to your profile.
Why volunteer to be a judge?
See the latest trends first-hand in technical communication, instructional design, promotional, informational and user support materials. You are exposed to new ideas and a chance to discuss content development and design with professional peers.
If you have good experience in technical writing, learning design, editing, or developing documentation or marketing communications, we’re looking for you. If you are adept with technical illustrations, video editing, posters or packaging, you will be delighted at this opportunity to see great examples of work from others in the profession.
STC membership is not a requirement. We provide extensive training for judges. More experienced judges will serve as Team leaders and guide you through assessments.
Training for all judges will be done by Carolyn Reynolds and a representative from STC International. Judge Training is mandatory for new judges.
