  • If you have any special or interesting details about the design of your card please include these. These details may be used by NACCU marketing for email blasts, social media posts, or to generate participation for future NACCU Best Card Design submissions.
Award Selection

All submitted designs will be voted on by the NACCU membership. There will be open voting online and on display at the annual conference.

Voting guidelines to be shared with voters:

  • Is the design unique, memorable, and cohesive?
  • Does the design “wow” the viewer or leave an impact?
  • Is the design creative and show attention to detail?
  • Does the viewer immediately associate the ID card design with the institution?

The NACCU Office will track the online voting results for those not attending the conference. For each award, the nomination receiving the top votes from NACCU membership will be the award recipient. In the event of a tie, the Awards Committee will make the final decision.
