Y-15 Colophon

A colophon includes technical aspects of the book and printing as well as a listing of the yearbook staff and adviser. It may include press association memberships, previous awards and other information. It is not simply a letter from the editor, although this may be included. FOR THE ENTRY TITLE, use your theme. Submit a PDF or image file of the page or spread(s). FOR SPREADS (a spread is two facing pages), if possible save your entry as a spread, creating a single horizontal page out of two vertical pages. Otherwise, the judges may not see both pages of your spread together and will not get the full impact of your design.
