HWG-News Tips

Previous Tips:


The Guild's foundation is members helping members, sharing our expertise and knowledge to improve our skills in the craft of web design. Everyone has something to teach, and something to learn!

HWG-News features member-submitted "tips" in each issue, in the space between articles and announcements.

Submitted tips MUST meet the following criteria:

  1. They should be no more than 8 lines (500 characters, about 80 words) in length.
  2. Tips must be quick, direct, and to-the-point. They should be able to stand alone without further explanation. (URLs to more information are acceptable.)
  3. They must address the broad topic announced in the previous newsletter.
  4. Commercial advertisements or endorsements ("Use product ABC! It's the best!") will most likely be rejected. In general, tips should follow standard W3C specifications on HTML, CSS, and accessibility whenever appropriate.
  5. Tips must be received by the posted deadline, a week from the release of each newsletter.
  6. The HWG-News editorial staff are the final judges of which tips are selected for publication.

What happens if your tip is selected? Each issue, the first-place winner will receive a free HWG t-shirt; runner-up tips will be also listed in the HWG-News newsletter as space permits!
