2021 Gold Quill Awards: setting yourself up for success

Recognition of professional communication excellence can go a long way in building confidence and pride among communication teams. For more than 40 years the IABC Gold Quill Awards have recognised and awarded excellence in strategic communication. Better still, it is the only awards program in the world which honours the dedication, innovation, and passion of communicators on a global scale. 

With the 2021 Gold Quill Award submission deadline approaching on 23 January, there is still time for you to submit your entry for this year’s awards. We understand that preparing an award submission takes time and care. So, we want to help you get the best start to your 2021 Gold Quill Award submission.

If you are new to the Gold Quill Awards, or need some inspiration for your entry, IABC has a wealth of resources available to help you prepare.

IABC’s Catalyst includes a dedicated Gold Quills section. Featuring case studies from previous winners, each case study includes a wealth of advice and tips to help you master your submission.

The IABC APAC YouTube page also features webinar recordings from current and previous Gold Quill Award winners and panel members. A must watch for anyone wanting to know more about what the panel is looking for when evaluating Gold Quill submissions.

Regular entries are open until 16 January 2022, with late entries accepted until 23 January 2022.
