Publications: President's Reports and Annual Reports
Entries should be a single print publication produced once during the year that is intended to summarize the accomplishments of the institution or a college, division or department within the institution. While entries will be evaluated based on concept and creativity, this is not a design category. Publications that, due to the pandemic, were distributed in PDF format instead of being printed also may be submitted.
Required: Attach one complete version of the publication in PDF format.
Do not enter:
Fundraising annual reports. Enter those in Publications: Fundraising Annual Reports and Fund Reports.
Annual magazines. Enter those in the appropriate magazine category.
Special editions of a magazine. Enter those in Magazines: Single Topic/Special Editions.
Judges will score nominations from 1 (lowest) to 10 (highest) in these five areas:
Overall concept and creativity
Content, writing and editing
Impact and results
Understanding of target audience(s)
Use of resources (budget, people, and time) and return on investment
