Submissions in main categories
It is planned that two different publications will be sent per submission, e.g. Issue 1 and 3 2019, in order to give the jury a better overview of the concept and design of the journal. The total fee for both submissions is 180 Euro. If your publication is published only once a year, for example Annual Reports, send only one copy.
Submit also the entry form.
Pdfs of both publications are required, all pages. If possible, create the Pdfs as double pages. For the production of the Pdfs, this means “assembly area” or “print sheets”. Attach Pdfs on CD, DVD or USB stick. It is sufficient if the Pdfs are suitable for an illustration at a height of approx. 10 cm. The Pdfs are only used if the publication is awarded.
If you are participating with several projects, it is best to send everything together in one package.
Addendum: You can add the files as described above on CD, DVD or USB stick. However, we have also created a section for uploading data. Uploading up to 600 MB in one step is possible. Please send the files zipped. For files over 600 MB simply send several zipped files. Click here to go to the upload center.
