Submissions Accepted for ANA’s Club Publications Competition

The following is a Press Release from the American Numismatic Association (ANA), announcing now through April 1, 2023, it is accepting submissions for its Club Publications competition.

The American Numismatic Association (ANA) is currently accepting submissions for the 2023 Barbara J. Gregory Outstanding Club Publications competition. Awards will be presented in four categories: local, regional, specialty and electronic. The contest is open to member clubs that are current with their ANA dues, and do not have an elected or salaried ANA officer as editor or assistant editor. Each publication may enter in only one category. If a publication qualifies for more than one category, such as local and electronic, the submitter may choose under which category to enter. 

Submissions for all categories must include just three samples of publications from 2022 and can be either mailed or emailed. Also required are the category of submission (local, regional, specialty or electronic); the editor’s name; and the name, address, phone number and email address of the submitter. Completed submissions must be postmarked or emailed no later than April 1

Judging Criteria 

Publications are rated on a scale of 1 to 5 (1-poor, 5-excellent) in the following areas: General appearance/appeal; consistency of format; neatness/readability; presentation of club-related news; presentation of numismatic/scholarly information; aptness/quality of illustrations; and originality/creativity. The size of the club and the amount of funds expended is not a factor in judging.
