IABC Launches 2014 Gold Quill Awards for members and non-members with new dedicated awards site and interactive entrants’ guide
IABC is now accepting entries for its 2014 Gold Quill awards, and it’s now easier to enter, less expensive, and open to members and non-members alike. IABC’s career-boosting program celebrates world-class thinking, smart creativity and serious measurement benchmarked against alignment with audience needs and business results. Former winners have said they’ve gotten the following out of entering:
- Stronger resume that will build professional reputation
- Respect from management and colleagues
- Global recognition for strategic and thinking
- Feedback from senior professionals
- Pride in achieving a globally recognized accomplishment
A dedicated site has everything needed to help entrants develop a winning entry, including The Midas Touch, an interactive guide that helps entrants with tips and insights into the entry and judging process.
Everyone who enters will also receive the benefit of having their entry scored by trained evaluators; all of whom are IABC members and professional communicators who will provide detailed feedback on every entry – not just the winners.
There are four divisions, divided into 47 categories covering the gamut of communications.
Anyone who completes the process before the end of this year will meet the Super-saver deadline and only pay $199 as an IABC member and $299 as a non-member.
The early-bird deadline is 31 January 2013 with a cost of $250 for members and $350 for non-members.
The final deadline is 10 March 2014, and the cost to enter then is $325 for members and $425 for non-members.
