Yearbook members: MIPA strongly encourages you to mail us one print copy of your yearbook for the judges to reference on Judging Day. Our judges have occasionally found it extremely helpful to look at how entry material actually appears in print (sometimes, work just doesn’t look the same on screen). This cannot be the same book that is used for Spartan Critiques (so if you also are submitting for a critique, you’ll have to send us a total of two books). Books used for Individual Contest judging will be returned to you at the awards ceremony, or can be picked up from the MIPA office at a later date at your convenience.
