Eligibility: All entries MUST have been published between Jan. 1, 2017 to Dec. 31, 2017. Entrants must be member colleges of JACC.
Entries: The contest entry site accepts writing entries as clips (cropped PDFs of the stories as they appeared in the print edition), or links to the stories in the online edition. Don’t submit Word or other similar document formats. Photo entries are JPEGs with embedded captions and entrants are asked to reproduce the caption in the caption field in the online entry form. Pages are submitted as PDFs, and issues are submitted as links to the complete edition/s on Issuu (issuu.com) or another similar platform, or to their online edition as appropriate. Please note: Schools with sites that use a subscription or registration model must provide judges easy access to their sites by providing a password that must be entered into the comments section of the BetterBNC entry. If judges cannot access entries, they can’t evaluate them. Download the PDF of the updated Publication Contest Guidelines.
