One of the most popular and successful of ACI programs is the annual awards contest, which recognizes excellence and promotes craft improvement through competition. First-, second- and third-place winners receive plaques. Professionals from the public and private sector evaluate all entries and offer written, constructive critiques.

This year’s contest – for work performed in 2019 – is NOW OPEN. This year’s contest features 33 categories – including many new social media and video categories. In addition, several categories were discontinued this year to make way for some of the new. 

Deadline for submitting entries is Friday, June 5 at midnight (PST). But why wait until the last minute? Prepare and submit your entries NOW! We’re using a new contest platform this year, but it should be easy to navigate.
