ASPC 2016 Annual Report Awards Call for Entries
The American Society of Professional Communicators is currently accepting entries for the 2016 ASPC Annual Report Awards competition.
The ASPC Annual Report Awards competition recognizes outstanding achievement in annual report production. It’s an opportunity to honor excellence in writing, design, photography and financial presentation, as well as online availability and features. In the nearly 20 years since the ASPC Annual Report Awards were first created, more than 300 of the world's largest and smallest companies, most-impactful nonprofits, and most-effective public-sector agencies have been honored with awards for excellence in the art of annual report communications.
Winners of the 2016 ASPC Annual Report Awards in each category and in each revenue class will receive a plaque signifying their achievement. The ASPC awards committee also may bestow the ASPC Colonial Award for Excellence or a certificate of honorable mention upon other exceptional entries.
Additionally, the ASPC is again offering a written critique of submitted annual reports. Since the program's inception, approximately 25 percent of participants have elected to receive written critiques. Critiques examine each annual report by the contest categories and provide comparative analysis against current trends and long-accepted standards. In light of ongoing economic headwinds, the ASPC is offering this service this year at a reduced rate of $600. Participation in the written critique and analysis program in no way affects competition judging. This year, to ensure the timely return of critiques, only the first 75 requests for written critiques will be accepted. Participation in the written critique and analysis program in no way effects competition judging.
The deadline for entries for the 2016 ASPC Annual Report Awards competition has been extended to Friday, September 16, 2016. And for the first time, in order to be more cost- and environmentally conscientious, this year entries can be submitted entirely online without the need to ship hard copies of your reports when online or other digital versions are available.
