Every year, Microsoft Press enters our highest quality titles into the Technical Publications competition hosted by our local chapter of the Society for Technical Communications (STC). Entries are evaluated on rigorous standards for production, design and typography, content and organization, copy editing, graphics, and how well the publication meets the needs of the intended audience.
Microsoft Press submitted seven entries this year. All seven were honored with awards! Four titles received high enough honors to qualify for the STC International Competition.
