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.
The 2021 contest – for work completed in 2020 – will be open very soon. But you don’t need to wait for the official Call for Entries. Now is the time to be looking over the work you did last year and considering what you want to submit for the contest. What did you produce last year that you are particularly proud of?
Go ahead and start drafting a Statement of Purpose for each entry – describe your entry and what that work product was meant to accomplish. That way, when the contest opens (very soon), you’ll have a leg up on the entry process.
Keep an eye on your email box and on Facebook. The Call for Entries is coming soon.
