2018 Bulletin Contest

CONTEST DEADLINE IS November 3, 2018
 All entries starting this year must be submitted in PDF format on a CD or DVD
in addition to the hard copies that are mailed as usual.

Next year’s contest has been announced. The deadline for article and bulletin submissions to me is November 3, 2018. Yeah, it’s really early this year, but the AFMS annual meeting is earlier. Remember, all of your submissions must have been published specifically for your bulletin/newsletter in 2018 to be eligible for the 2019 contest.

There is one permanent rule change beginning with the 2017 contest that involves the number of submissions allowed per club per category at four entries. The only categories this rule change does not apply to are the individual bulletin categories including ‘New Editor’, ‘Mini Bulletin’, ‘Small Bulletin’, and ‘Large Bulletin’. The bulletin categories will remain at one single entry per club for one of the
four categories.

There is a temporary rule change for the 2017 contest that involves the Written Features and Drawn Features categories. The AFMS rules were not specific regarding allowing first place winners from submitting an entry the following year for the Written Features and Drawn Features categories. So, the SFMS will follow the AFMS in the recommendation only for the 2017 contest. There WILL NOT be a restriction on people who won the first place award in 2015 or 2016 from entering the 2017 contest.
