We shared the good news about several of our projects winning prestigious technical communication awards in the Lone Star Community’s annual competition earlier this year. Two of those entries (www.powerpedal.com and BTU insert of Texas Coop Power magazine) were automatically entered in the Society for Technical Communication’s International Technical Publications Competition.
We are delighted to announce that we received an Award of Excellence for the BTU insert of Texas Coop Power Magazine in the category of Technical Publications–Magazines. Commenting on three months of BTU’s 2007 local pages insert, two judges highlighted the person-to-person flavor of the articles and how the reader is invited to be part of the BTU family. Another mentioned a “good cross-section of topics without losing sight of focus of BTU s a local insert.”
The winning entry will be on display at the 55th Annual STC International Conference in June.
The LSC’s annual competition for technical communication and online publications rates entries on four factors: writing, graphics, copyediting, and overall integration. All factors are judged in the context of the purpose, content, and organization of the document. Distinguished winners are automatically entered into STC’s International Competition.
