Time to get your entries ready for the ACE Critique & Awards Program!
The ACE Critique & Awards Program opens January 1 and runs through Friday, February 9, 2018.
President-elect Elizabeth Gregory North and ACE Executive Director
Holly Young invite you to submit your best projects to this annual
program, which last year drew more than 300 submissions!
The C&A program recognizes individuals and teams for excellence in communication and technology skills. Awards will be presented at our August conference in Scottsdale, Arizona.
New this year! All entries must be submitted electronically, either as a digital file or as a link to a website or file-sharing service. No physical or hard-copy entries will be accepted.
In addition, class descriptions and instructions for writing up your entry have been revised for simplicity and clarity. And podcasts have been added to Class 28—Electronic Media, Audio, Programs, podcasts, and spots. The Diversity category, with the help of the Diversity Learning Community, has expanded to more clearly define these important classes. You will find both a class A and B within this category, one for diverse audiences and one for targeted audiences. We urge you to read these new categories carefully and select the appropriate one for your entry.
Please review this list of classes with low entries in 2016 and 2017. Give these classes careful consideration when developing your entries.
Carefully review the following entry fees and payment methods.
The preferred method of payment is online via credit card as you submit your entry in Submittable.
The lead entrant is responsible for listing all teammates on the entry form. ACE cannot add teammates to entries after they have been submitted without the consent of the lead entrant and/or the individual or institution paying for the entry.
