Editor’s Note: Invite to Extra! readers to apply for position on Gold Ink Awards Judging Panel
PHILADELPHIA -- There are just a few days left until the deadline for submitting entries into the Gold Ink Awards will be upon us (Wednesday, May 31), and just a couple of weeks until the judging for this major national competition begins (June 6-9). Due to the increasing number of entries received over the past few years, we have decided to expand the judging process by an additional day to allow judges to spend more time judging each category of entries--from book covers/jackets to hardcover books, cookbooks, textbooks and fine editions, plus many more categories in magazine, catalog, direct mail and other print categories.
Due to our expansion, we are looking to fill a few remaining spaces on our judging panel, which is comprised of experienced industry professionals from book, magazine and catalog publishing companies, as well as from advertising and direct mail agencies. We welcome applications from our Book Business Extra! readers who have significant print production experience. (Due to the nature of the competition, only publishing executives are considered; vendors/providers to the competition are not permitted on the judging panel.)
Judges, who are featured in the Gold Ink Awards coverage in Book Business and Publishing Executive magazines’ fall issue, along with all the award winners, are asked to come to our offices in Philadelphia for one of the four judging days to judge a number of the more than 1,500 entries we receive in 50 categories.
If you are interested in applying for a spot on the judging panel, please send an e-mail with a brief explanation of your background to: MSteinmetz@napco.com.
