Entry title Contributors Company
Best of Show
Best of Show entries exhibit the ideal for their category. They are not judged against each other; they are judged solely against established standards. For example, how do you compare the best annual report with the best software guide? In STC competitions, the best annual report is compared with the ideal annual report, and the best software guide with the ideal software guide. Thus, the Best of Show judges must determine how close each candidate comes to realizing the ideal for its category. The entry that comes closest to the ideal for its category is the Best of Show.

Distinguished Technical Communication
An entry that wins an award of Distinguished Technical Communication is clearly superior in all areas. The entry contains no major flaws and few, if any, minor flaws. It applies the principles of technical communication in an outstanding way, particularly the way that it anticipates and fulfills the needs of its audience.

An entry that wins an award of Excellence consistently meets high standards in all areas. The entry might contain a single major flaw or a few minor flaws. The entry demonstrates an exceptional understanding of technical communication principles.
