    Where would I submit responsive interactive design available on all Android devices?

    Hi SPD! Apparently, overseas entries get a 30% discount. Does that apply no matter if you're a member or not? In that case it will be either 30% off 55$ or 30% off 100$ ... ?

  • SPD

    Hi Lars -
    The overseas discount applies to both members and non-members. If you pay for 3 or more entries, you might as well become a member. C'mon and join the party!

    I don't understand why it's not an option to upload images of print publications. I find it incredibly frustrating that I have to send entries via snail mail.

  • Neil Jamieson

    I hear you Shannon, submitting via snail mail isn't the most convenient entry method but its to your benefit. Supplying the original printed page is the best possible way for our judges to review the layouts in context. Its the opinion of this society (from experience) that for now alternative ways of reviewing your work (viewing jpegs on screen/printing out your submissions on 11x17) just aren't up to snuff and don't show off your awesome work in its best possible light. We feel viewing anything other than the original published work would skew the results and could put your entry at a disadvantage (imagine the inconsistency of screen calibration and printer toner, not to mention the white border on full bleed spreads). When our dozens of judges review the over 7000 entries as printed pages over 3 full days, the playing field is a lot more level. Apologies for the inconvenience...but it is well worth the effort...
