2012 Alcuin Society awards for book design now accepting submissions
The Alcuin Society is a Vancouver-based not-for-profit outfit in "support and appreciation of fine books."
Sitting on the judges' panel this year will be Quebec-based freelance book design Marvin Harder, Vancouver-based freelance book designer Naomi MacDougall, and Ontario's Will Reuter, book designer, typographer and founder of Aliquando Press. The Alcuin Society announced earlier this year that Rueter would receive the Alcuin Society's 2013 Robert R. Reid Award and Medal for lifetime achievement in the book arts.
The criteria for the Limited Editions category has been tweaked this year to include entries with unbound pages, and to specify that "both letterpress and digital printing qualify," and "there must be at least three copies produced in one edition for the project to qualify."

Submissions must be received by March 1, 2013. The awards will be held March 23, in Vancouver. A list of last year's winners in available on Design Edge.
