American Alliance of Museums - American Alliance of Museum’s Curators Committee (CurCom) and EdCom and NAME and Museology Graduate Program at the University of Washington, Seattle
Competition for USA, Canada, and International museum exhibition label writers and editors for outstanding label writing. The purpose of the program is to display examples of excellent label writing, highlight best practices, and to inspire and teach museum professionals. Applicants compete for their exhibition labels to be featured in the Marketplace of Ideas during the AAM Annual Meeting & MuseumExpo and in the competition’s online archive. The goal is to serve as a resource for museum professionals striving to write excellent label copy.
Excellent exhibition label copy is clear, concise, and captivating. This combination is not easily achieved, and the writers and editors who craft the best label copy often go unrecognized. The competition seeks to recognize excellence in the composition of label text. Jurors do not consider design or graphic treatments in their evaluation.
Recognized entries will be on display in the Marketplace of Ideas at this year’s AAM Annual Meeting and featured on the CurCom website (www.curcom.org).
