If you have submitted entries for GENERAL EXCELLENCE consideration, judges in these categories will offer one page critiques of your magazine for an OPTIONAL $100 fee. This private document will be sent to you following the annual meeting. The critiques will include observations about the writing, reporting, design, packaging and, in general, how your magazine compares to other entries in your circulation group.

If you have submitted a General Excellence entry and wish to add this critique option, check the box on the form when paying for your entry fees.
