Post from Kimberly Kim, group content publishing manager
Six of six titles entered in chapter-level competition win awards, four move on to the international competition
Microsoft Press is pleased to announce that all six of the Microsoft Press titles entered in our local competition of the Society for Technical Communications (STC) were honored with awards! Each title was evaluated against rigorous standards for information design, use and appearance of visual elements, usability, writing and editing, and how well the publication meets the needs of the intended audience. Two titles received the highest level of award granted in the competition, and four qualified for submission to the International Summit Award competition.
Huge congratulations to our fabulous Microsoft Press authors! And my sincere congratulations and thanks to everyone across Microsoft Learning and O’Reilly Media who contributed to the publication of such high-quality titles.
