RGD contacts Fire & Ash Publishers to request amendment to Book Cover Contest
13/03/15
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.
