One of the most popular and successful of ACI programs is the annual awards contest, which recognizes excellence and promotes craft improvement through competition. This year, for the first time, member agencies and organizations will be able to enter the contest online. This means no physical paperwork to fill out and no need to use the U.S. Postal Service or costly overnight delivery services to send in your entries. To help offset the cost of the online system, members agreed to raise the awards entry fee from $30 to $40.

The contest is now closed. This year we received more than 400 entries – a new record by far! Thank you for your participation.

First-, second- and third-place winners receive plaques. Professionals from the public and private sector evaluate all entries and offer written, constructive critiques. ACI’s Awards Committee strives to provide a variety of categories so that smaller member organizations as well as larger ones may find areas in which to compete. Winners are announced at a gala awards banquet during the annual summer conference.
