· Papers must be prepared for blind review and should be of the length, format, and style characteristic of ACPQ articles. Participants should consult a recent edition of the journal or the ACPQ “Article Submission Guidelines” at http://www.pdcnet.org/acpq.

· No author may enter more than one paper in the contest.

· Entering a paper in the contest constitutes agreement by all of the paper’s authors to its publication in the ACPQ should it be accepted for that purpose; such agreement is not contingent on the paper’s winning the contest. Papers entered in the contest must therefore not be under consideration for publication elsewhere.
