Bulletin Editors Contest

To encourage improvement and development of Affiliate Organization's Newsletters/Bulletins, the Federation sponsors a Bulletin Editors Award Contest each year where editors can enter their bulletins as well as original articles written by their members. The top three in each of several categories are automatically forwarded and entered in the AFMS Contest.

CONTEST DEADLINE: January 10, 2020

The BEAC was designed to offer guidance to editors in the publication of their Society newsletters and to honor outstanding longevity of these editors and their contributing authors. The Bulletin Editors’ Contest is held annually as a means to evaluate this work with results announced at the annual convention. 

No entries will be accepted by e-mail. Three copies of ALL entries must be mailed in hard copy format.

All entries must be submitted to:  

Mary Bateman

Next year’s contest has been announced. The deadline for article and bulletin submissions is January 10th, 2020. Remember, all of your submissions must have been published specifically for your bulletin/newsletter in 2019 to be eligible for the 2020 contest.

There is one permanent rule change beginning with the 2017 contest that involves the number of submissions allowed per Society 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 Society for one of the four categories.
