Kathy Halloran and I are co-chairs for the 1995-96 Technical Publications
and Art Competition sponsored by the STC Rocky Mountain Chapter. We need
judges for all categories: Newsletters, Brochures, Trade/News Articles,
Scholarly & Professional Articles, Technical Reports, Training Manuals,
Student Competition, Software Manuals, Hardware Manuals, Books, and Art.

Qualifications for judges include:

- Minimum of 3 years experience in technical communication field
- Familiarity with type of document or artwork in category
- Ability to recognize good technical communication
- Ability to objectively analyze and evaluate documents for content,
editing, layout, style, etc. and also the ability to examine the
parts to see how they combine into an effective whole
- Ability to provide constructive criticism and justify scores
- Some experience in editing or art evaluation
(Note: Judges may not judge in any category in which they or their
company has an entry.)

Ideally, judges should come from outside your work group to avoid
"stacking the deck."

Judges for this year's competition must attend two meetings -- one on
November 5 and one on December 3. Judges will also be invited to attend
the Awards Banquet, which will be held in April 1996.

If you are interested in being a judge for this year's Technical
Publications and Arts Competition, or if you have any questions, please
