Technical Communication Call for Cover Illustrations


STC is pleased to announce the call for cover illustrations for the August and November 2018 issues of Technical Communication.  The deadline for submissions is 1 June, 2018.

For the August 2018 issue, we invite cover illustrations on the subject of rethinking ideas of audiences and users in technical communication.

For the November 2018 issue (a special issue on election technologies), we invite cover illustrations on the subject of technical communication, elections, and the role of technologies.

Cover illustrations might be diagrams, drawings, photographs, collages, infographics, cartoons, comic strips, or brief graphic narratives.

For either issue, please submit your cover illustration (approximately 20×20 cm or 8×8 inches) as a high-resolution (300 dpi or better) jpg file by 1 June 2018 to with a brief explanation (100-200 words) of how your illustration addresses the cover subject.  A five-member international jury of specialists will organize anonymous review of the submissions and choose each issue’s cover illustration.  Honorable mentions will be published inside the journal.
