The contest is for a layout/template of the report. The file type question dhoul be posted to the contestholder. Ch mentions  they have used MS so check with client and see if they want to continue with that file type 

 

Thank you

Yeah I saw this posted and thought to myself that it would be far better to use InDesign  for something like this,  but the CH is likely familiar with  what  they  need, and they  have said as much  in the brief. 

 

As far as the format for upload, maybe a screenshot of your work would suffice? Ask the CH for clarification, or simply fall  back on what  you think is best for displaying your work.

The CH asks for either as MS Word or Mac (Apple) Pages template as the final product.

He seems to be pretty good at running the word processing programs.

Once in a while writers who are self publishing will use sophisticated page layout programs, but this is rare.

The word processing templates available on-line are not up the aesthetic standards he is hoping for.

They are generally simple but elegant reports.

His publication needs almost a magazine quality layout.

To my mind, I think that this will be difficult in word processing but easy in InDesign.

 

I am not sure if his end product is delivered on paper or if it is electronic (PDF, html).

The sample PDF appears formated for paper.

If he is planning to deliver an electronic product, this would be an excellent opertunity to consider what his report would look like on a tablet or smart phone.

 

Some clarification is needed.
