RGD contacts Fire & Ash Publishers to request amendment to Book Cover Contest
In an email explaining the Association's Rules of Professional Conduct, which prohibit RGDs from participating in contests requesting speculative work, RGD urged Fire & Ash Publishers to cancel their competition and instead issue a Request For Proposals.


The Association highlighted the importance of research, strategy and client participation for achieving marketing and communication objectives, pointing out that a lack of appropriate process likely would not result in a cover that adequately reflects the qualities of the book. 


Fire & Ash did not choose to cancel the competition, but were made aware of the fact that RGD Members would be prohibited from taking part.
